Life changed for locals and travelers alike back in 2013 when this underwater train opened to connect the two continents. What used to be a challenge... getting across the Bosphorus (either by ferry or car)... is now a pleasure.

This is a very convenient creation to be applauded. It connects the European side with the Asian side by underwater railway. It is not expensive. The stations on both sides are well integrated with city subway lines. You can go from Sirkeci to Kartal subway...More

Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
