2 r A City unique in that she bridges two continents, Europe and Asia, Istanbul stretches along the shores of the Bosphorus which meet the waters of the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara, as well as the Golden Horn on the European side. Istanbul's strategic setting gives way for the reason that she has been the succesive capital of three world empires. The city is a fusion between the East and the West, the past and the present. Aside from her historical interests, Istanbul is a fascinating city filled with great beauty and excitement. An elegant display of minarets and domes dominates the city's skyline. Within the city, the bustle of the crowd, the grinding noises coming from the cars as they climb up Istanbul's ancient cobblestone streets, the ceaseless coming and going of the ferries and the chants of the merchants as they pass by all adds to the touches o f what makes Istanbul the colorfuf and exciting port it is today. Istanbul is infinite in her sights: The museums followed by the ancient churches, palaces and mosques are all summarized by the unforgettable excursion down the Bosphorus mao king one's stay not less than three to four days. i Suleymaniye Mosque

SHOPPING IN ISTANBUL Shopping in Istanbul one of the delights of being in the city where one can enjoy wandering through the colorful bazaars as much as browsing in the modern shops choosing things from simple handicrafts to the most sophisticated jewellery. The favorite shopping centre is, of course, the "Kapalı Çarşı" or the Covered Bazaar in the old city. Here is a labyrinth of shops where each trade has its own street such as the goldsmith's street or the carpet seller's street". In the Bazaar there is something to suit every taste. There is a tremendous selection of jewellery from traditional pieces like Harem rings to modern settings. The carpet shops present a lovely arrangement of vivid colors and Intricate designs. If a carpet seems too expensive then one should not forget the kilim and cicim (a kind of rug) with their bold Anatolian designs and bright colors. The best sort of souvenirs are the genuine products of ancient Turkish crafts such as the hand painted ceramic plates, and the hand-beaten copper and brassware, trays, water ewers, cauldrons, etc.) which make beautiful decorative pieces; or the "heybe" (pouches) and the "yastık" (pillows) made out of wool in the traditional Anatolian maze of colors. Also something memorable to take back are the vases and plates in the beautiful green or gold onyx stone and in addition pipes carved out of the soft white meerchaum stone. There are the gaily embroidered blouses in şile bez, ideal for summer wear as the yemeni edged with "oya", (lace). If one is interested then it is worth looking at the great range of antiques in the Old Bedesten in the centre of the bazaar. There is an endless array of authentic antiques and souvenirs: Copperware, lamps, arms, jewellery, tiles, silver and glassware. Behind the Yeni Cami (New Mosque) is another charming bazaar of a d ifferent sort, the Mısır Çarşısı or the Spice Bazaar. Here the air is filled with the enticing aroma of open sacks of mint,thyme, cinnamon and allspice. Contrasting with the gay atmosphere of the bazaars are the sophisticated shops of İstiklal Caddesi and Cumhuriyet Caddesi both branching o ff Taksim Square. Here are the most fashionable shops where one can find the most exquisite jewellery and clothing as well as fine quality leather goods such as suede coats, jackets and well designed handbags and shoes.
4 BOSPHORUS A stay in Istanbul should not be completed w ithout the traditional and unforgettable excursion by boat along the Bosphorus, the winding straits separating Europe and Asia. Along its shores one w ill find a delightfully surprising m ixture o f the past and the present, as well as a range of grand splendor and quaint beauty: The modern hotels and ancient villas o f wood "ya h ", palaces of marble and fortresses, small vacationing spots and the charming fishing villages. The best way o f seeing the Bosphorus is to board one o f the passenger boats that regularly zigzag up the Bosphorus from the point of Karaköy. Stopping alternatively on the Asian and European side, this round trip excursion takes about 7 hrs. and the fare is very reasonable. Along the excursion you w ill encounter the magnificent Palace of Dolmabahçe, the residence o f the last Ottoman sultans. Further up the Bosphorus you w ill find the gardens and imperial pavilions of the Y ıld ız Palace. Elegantly spannin the Bosphorus and linking Europe and Asia fo r the first time is the Suspension Bridge. And along the Boshorus are contrasting elements of old and new such as the Ottoman wooden villas or "y a lı" of Arnavutköy and the luxurious apartments of Bebek. Facing each other across the Bosphorus are the fortresses o f Rumeli Hisarı and Anadolu Hisarı. During the summertime there are a series o f shows including folklore performances (celebrating the A rt and Culture Festival of Istanbul from the 20th June to the 15th o f July,). Facing each other across the straits are the elegant villas of Emirgan (on the European side) and Kanlıca (on the Asian side) famous fo r its yoghourt. Further along the European side is the beautiful bay of Tarabya, w ith its yachts at anchor and its many seafront tavernas, continuing on to the charming villages o f Büyükdere and Sarıyer. A t the same tim e it is possible to contact agencies which specialize in the organization of "mini-cruises" on the Bosphorus or trips by car along its shores. The shores o f the Bosphorus are filled w ith fine restaurants and night clubs. In the many restaurants along the Bosphorus one can enjoy the delights o f good food and entertainment. The traditional fare in such restaurants is "m eze" (hors d'oeuvres) followed by freshly grilled fish and accompanied by the excellent Turkish w hite wines or the traditinal "ra k ı" (aniset), which is drunk w ith water and ice. A colorful array o f meze is presented, choosing such tempting disher as "m idye dolması" (stuffed mussels), "taram a" (fish roe salad), "çerkez tavuğu" (Circassian chicken-cold chicken in walnut puree w ith garlic), and "yaprak dolması" (stuffed vine leaves). The fish is always fresh and we would recommend you the "lü fe r" (blue-fish), "kalkan" (turbot), "levrek" (bass) and "barbunya" (red mullet). The colorful night clubs, "gazino", provide splendid entertainment thoughout the whole dinner ranging from a selection of Turkish songs to the famous and unforgettable belly dance. Bosphorus and Rumeli Hisarı
5 VICINITY OF ISTANBUL TH E PR IN CES'ISLA N D S These nine islands at the mouth of the Gulf of İzmit are famous for their beautiful pine wooded scenery and sandy beaches probably taking their name from the fact that they were once the pleasure islands of the Byzantine princes. The largest and most enjoyable of the Islands is the Büyük Ada, an hour's journey by ferry departing from the Eminönü side of the Galata Bridge. On the island you'll have the memorable pleasure of taking a ride by phaeton among the pine trees after having relaxed on the many little beaches in the numerous coves surrounding the island. TH E B EA CH ES OF ISTANBU L Istanbul is surrounded by beaches on the European and Asian sides of the Sea of Marmara and on the Black Sea. On the European side of Marmara are the resorts of Ataköy, Yeşilköy and Florya, all with fine restaurants. On the Asian side of Marmara are the beaches of Moda, Fenerbahçe, Caddebostan and Suadiye. A t the end of the Bosphorus on the Black Sea are the large sandy beaches of Kilyos (on the European side) and Şile (on the Asian side). PANORAM IC TOUR O F ISTANBU L This tour takes approximately 4 hrs. by car and gives a good all around impression of the city. Leaving from Taksim Square you follow Cumhuriyet and Halaskargazi Avenues to the peripheral road taking you across the Bosphorus bridge. After crossing the bridge on the Asiatic side you can go up the Bosphorus to Kanlıca. Before returning past the bridge on the Asian side following the main road is Küçük Çamlıca (splendid panoramic view of the Bosphorus, Sea of Marmara and the Princes' Islands). Continuing along this ring road you arrive at Harem quay and take the ferry across the Bosphorus (excellent view of Topkapi Palace). After arriving at Sirkeci you take the coast road along the Sea of Marmara, passing around the sea walls, Yedikule and the land walls. The first gate in the land walls Is the Topkapi Gate, and passing through this gate you continue along Millet Caddesi and Atatürk Boulevard, under the Aqueduct of Valens, over the bridge to Galata Tower (Panoramic tour of the whole city). From here you can return to Taksim Square via İstiklal Caddesi. URBAN TRANSPORTATION The Bus The cheapest, but relatively a slow means of transport. On the European side, the main bus lines start from the Taksim Square, Eminönü Square (near the Galata Bridge) and the Hürriyet Square (near the Covered Bazaar). On the Asian side, there are departures from Üsküdar and from Kadıköy. There is also a regular bus service every half hour between the Yeşilköy Airport and the THY Airline terminal in Şişhane. Dolmuş (shared taxi) A practical and a cheaper means of transport when compared to the taxi. The "dolmuş" recognized by its yellow band is a shared taxi that serves for parts of the city and for the suburbs (especially for the localities situated on both sides of the Bosphorus). Each passenger pays according to the distance travelled and the fares are fixed by the municipality. The main "dolmuş" stations are at Taksim, Eminönü, Sirkeci (in front o f the train station), Üsküdar and Kadıköy. Taxi The taxi stations are numerous in the city. Taxies are easily recognizet by their chequered black and yellow bands. They are not equipped with taxi-meters, but each has an official tariff (for to get on, for the first three kilometers, and for every kilometer travelled over). In the Yeşilköy Airport, a taxi tariff is found on the taxi station that shows the fares for various parts of the city. Steamer A practical, enjoyable and a cheap means of transport. There are departures from Karaköy (Galata Bridge), to the Bosphorus, the Golden Horn, Üsküdar, Kadıköy, Haydarpaşa (railway station) and the Princes Islands. 1,2, 3, 4 ports are on the side of Eminönü 5, 6, 9 are on the foot of the bridge 7, 8 are on the side of Karaköy. 1 Kadıköy, Boğaziçi (Bosphorus) 2 Üsküdar, Boğaziçi (Bosphorus) 3 Boğaziçi (Bosphorus) 4 Boğaziçi (Bosphorus) 5 Adalar (The Princes Island) 6 Adalar (The Princes Islands) 7 Kadıköy 8 Haydarpaşa 9 Haliç (The Golden Horn) Ferry Boat To cross the Bosphorus: Kabataş- Üsküdar and Sirkeci- Harem. A frequent service from both sides and the crossing takes minutes. Train The local trains that depart from Sirkeci Station, serve for the beaches on the European side of the Sea of Marmara and those that depart from Haydarpaşa train station serve for the beaches on the Asian side. Car In Istanbul, the traffic moves relatively freely and has become much more easy with the suburban roads and the Bosphorus Bridge. The car is the best vehicle to go to the beaches of Marmara and to go about on the two sides of the Bosphorus. To cross the Bosphorus is by toll: A return toll for cars 60 TL for buses 200 TL. Please refer to the "Rent-a- car services" and to the "Parking areas-garages."
