stanbul Haliçte, Unkapanı ile Azapkapısı arasında kurulan köprü. Gelip geçenlerden para alınmadığı için bu köprüye Hayratiye Köprüsü adı verilmişti. Sultan İkinci Mahmûdun emriyle kaptan-ı deryâ vekili Fevzi Ahmed Paşa tarafından tersânede yaptırıldı. Köprü 1836 yılında tamamlandı ve açılışı bizzat Sultan İkinci Mahmûd Han, köprüyü at üzerinde geçerek yaptı. Köprünün boyu tahminî olarak 400 m, genişliği ise 10 m idi. Köprünün ortası gerektiğinde büyük gemilerin geçmesi için açılabiliyordu.

This is an overview of Istanbul

Istanbul (historically Byzantium and later Constantinople; see the other names of Istanbul) is the largest city of Turkey and the third largest city in the world. The city covers 27 districts of the Istanbul province.
It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbor known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) side of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world which is situated on two continents. In its long history, Istanbul served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330–395), the East Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The city was chosen as joint European Capital of Culture for 2010. The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.
