Karakoy Iskelesi, Istanbul, Turkey

At the mooring area Karaköy in Istanbul:

Here at the water mouth of the Golden Horn into the Bosporus, one can find several landing stages of the liners of Istanbul. One of them, the ferry to Kadiköy at the Asian part of Istanbul, is just entered by passengers. On the other side of the Golden Horn there is the Topkapi Palace in the center of a green park. A bit to the right the Hagia Sophia. Down at the end of the Galata Bridge one can see the Yeni Camii with its two minarets. Above the center of the Galata Bridge the Süleymaniye Mosque and its four minaretts are visible in the mist.

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.
