Turkish Flag of Flowers, Istanbul
Istanbul

The economic heart of Istanbul is in an area called Levent. Most of the skyscrapers belong the Turkish banks, are office buildings or big shopping centers. This pano was shot on a saturday afternoon, but in the rush hour the road is completely filled with cars, and what looks like a road with four lanes will have then at least six. Next to the road the meadow had been used to create the Turkish with red flowers.

More About 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.
