Property in Istanbul

Many know it as Constantinople, Byzantion or Constantinople. Istanbul is a city of two continents, divided and connected by the Bosphorus Strait.
However, most of the historical monuments are located in the European part of the city. One of the most important monuments is undoubtedly the Column of Constantine, also known as Cemberlitaš, dating from the year 330. The Suleiman Mosque is also a very visible landmark of the city.
Topkapi Palace was the Sultan's residence and is still an ornament of Istanbul.
Dolmabahce Palace is a representative imperial palace on the shores of the Bosphorus. The huge complex occupies an area of approximately 700 square meters.
After Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque is the most famous symbol of Istanbul. The largest mosque in the city is also the pinnacle of Byzantine art. A typical example of Ottoman Baroque is the Tulip Mosque from the 18th century.

Istanbul's location on the old trade route between Europe and Asia made its inhabitants skilled traders. In Istanbul, you will find many wonderful things from the Orient - from Ottoman antiques, carpets, bedspreads, pillows, blankets, jewelry, meerschaum pipes, brass and copper products, artwork, handmade leather shoes, clothing, calligraphy, furniture, ceramics, old maps, books, press to food and spices.

But you will also find something more here - elegant boutiques, vintage shops, design centers and modern, luxurious department stores. Istanbul rivals London and Paris in terms of where to spend your money. However, as always in this vast metropolis, you need to know where to go for the right purchases.

Almost 400 shops next to each other make up the so-called Big Bazaar. There is a lot to see in Istanbul.
