home to a population of more than 14 million people, and with enough
historical sites to keep any person busy for several lifetimes
is as stunningly beautiful as it is unique. it has been much-written about, full of attractions, culture, restaurants, accommodations, nightlife, museums, art galleries, shopping malls, etc just waiting to be shared. This Blog should be a
particularly good way to express sentiments about a place or event or happening or experience about the City and Istanbul
certainly has no shortage of opinions dedicated to it.
