Let’s start to explore Istanbul. First visit is Hippodrome. It was the center of sport activities of Constantinople. <br><br>Haghia Sophia, is the most famous museum in Turkey and one of the greatest marvels of architecture.

Just go anywhere and sit. This will grow on you. I would highly recommend seeing Istanbul from both Asian and European sides from the Strait. There are few places where we were able to walk for short distances along the strait, watching people catch fish and hearing calls of seagulls. Seeing both from the ships was one of the best experiences during our stay.

We did the Bosphorus Strait boat tour, its €20 Euros and really worth it. It was perfect, 3 hours long, you see loads of the city. We went for the 12.00 tour and it was very relaxes, snacks available as extra on the boat.
