    Welcome to Taksim Square, the very heart of Istanbul in Turkey. Do you know what the word Taksim means? Its literal translation is distribution or division, and that’s precisely where the waterlines and main source of water branches and spreads out to the various parts of the city! For obvious reasons this heartland has turned into a commercial tourist hub and can be the most exciting part of your trip

    Istanbul Travel Tips

    About Istanbul

    As a city that cradles both Asian and European cultures, Istanbul has innumerable stories to count. Sitting at the throat of the Bosphorus Strait, this city is at the confluence of eastern and western culture. Previously, three ancient empires—the Romans, Byzantines, and Ottomans—made this their capital city, previously known as Constantinople and Byzantium. An abundance of ancient relics and structures each culture left behind have been preserved. In the old Sultanahmet District you can see magnificent Blue Mosque and, in the same visit, go to the nearby Hagia Sophia—a Greek Orthodox church that became a mosque and is now a museum)—and the Ottoman-era Topkapı Palace. The century-old Grand Bazaar is a spectacle not to be missed. The goods inside are dazzling to behold and it is a good place to buy souvenirs.

    Best Experience in Istanbul

    Cruise along the Bosporus Straits and you will have the mystical experience of having Europe on your left and Asia on your right. Treasure hunting at the ancient Islamic minarets, enjoying the sights of antiquated trams passing by, and visit the Dolmabahce sultan palace to witness the splendor and glory of the Ottoman Empire of old. Landmarks not to be missed are the Hagia Sophia Ayasofya (Church of Divine Wisdom) built during the 6th century and Sultanahmet Mosque, one of the most magnificent buildings in Turkey. In the afternoon, you could chill out at a cafe and savor Turkish Red Tea and Turkish Coffee Divination. In bustling and yet ancient Istanbul, every inch of land seems like a historical poem and you will love it if you are there.
