ISTANBUL - The most important reason why Istanbul has developed as a world metrolpolis (12 mio. inhabitants) is the geopolitical location of the city. Istanbul, located wher the 48.north latitudeand 28. longitude intersect, is the only city in the world which is established on two continents (Europe and Asia).
The city consists of three parts in general; On the European side, the Historical Peninsula to the south of the Golden Horn and the Galata District to the north, and the New City on the Asian side.
The European side of the city is a trade and business center, whereas the Asian side is more of a residential area. Istanbul is established on the both sides of the Bosphorus, which connects the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara, and separates Asia and Europe. The 7 km. long narrow inlet, named as the Golden Horn, divides the European side of the city into two.
This city is indeed worth more than one trip in lifetime!
