Ortaköy, Istanbul, Turkey 1

Evening in Istanbuls quarter Ortaköy at the Bosphorus<br />

On the small square between the Ortaköy Mosque and the cafes, bars and restaurants people meet at night. The mosque was built in 1856 and its real name is Büyük Mecidiye Camii. Here one can enjoy the view over the Bosphorus strait and at the Bosphorus bridge or have a nice dinner. Since 1973 the bridge connects Europe and Asia. With a total length of 1560m and a longest span of more than 1000m it is about 64m above the water surface. After the attempted coup of 15th of July 2016 the bridge was renamed as "15 Temmuz Sehitler Köprüsü" (July 15th Martyrs Bridge).

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.
