The Ancient Roman Capital
Istanbul, once known as Constantinople is the only city in the world to fall under two continents, the two being Europe and Asia. The Pride of Turkey, the city has an ancient and interesting history. It has served as the capital of the bygone Roman, Byzantine, and the Ottoman empires. It was built on the same principles as Old Rome, which is most evident in the seven hills that surround its city walls.
Attractions in this transcontinental metropolis range from the Grand Bazaar, Galata Tower, Blue Mosque, Yerebatan Cistern, to the Museum of Islamic Art. Do not miss out on a visit to this city's hamams when you are here. A luxurious sauna, hydrating body wash, and invigorating oil massage rolled into one, these are considered to offer the most delightful Turkish experiences.
For the Indian Traveler
Although the city is not home to a large Indian expat community, you can feel right at home at the Sultanahmet neighborhood. When visiting Istanbul, you must ensure you apply for a Visa in India well in advance with a duly filled application form as well as supporting documents.
Indian Standard Time (IST) is 2h30m ahead of Istanbul.
