Avrupa Passage

The World > Europe > Middle East > Turkey > Istanbul

Avrupa Passage, that must be the one that is located in the very backstreets among others, is placed just o few steps beside Embassy of United Kingdom. It is narrower with regards to other passages but it has a different beauty. This beauty is obtained by the new-renaissance style of architecture. When you look inside the passage from a distance in the enterance you can not guess this beauty. May be it is the most historical passage with its look having sculptures on left and right sides and the sunshine that enters form the transparent glass roof adds more beauty.

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.
