Istanbul is the largest city, an important seaport, a major industrial, commercial and cultural center of Turkey. The city is located on the two banks of the 30-kilometer Bosphorus strait connecting the Black and Marmara Sea. The Bosphorus divides the two parts of the world - Europe and Asia, so Istanbul is located in both parts of the world at once.
The first settlements on the site of modern Istanbul date back to 600 BC. The city of Kalkedon (now Kadiköy district) was founded by Dorians from Megara on the Asia Minor coast of the Bosphorus, a colony on the European coast was founded several decades later. The Greek colony received the name "Byzantium" by the name of the leader of the colonists. In 196, Byzantium assisted the rival Emperor Septim the Cruel, for which he was completely destroyed, and became part of the Roman Empire. Later Septim Cruel rebuilt the city. In 324 AD Emperor Constantine the Great rebuilt the proud and erected new walls, and then declared the city the capital of the Roman Empire. In 394, the city began to bear the name of Constantinople.
For a long time, Constantinople was the capital of Byzantium, which became the center of Eastern Christianity. In the VII-IX centuries, the city withstood 8 sieges from the Arabs. Serious damage to Constantinople caused the Crusaders, who captured him in 1204 during the IV Crusade. The last take-off of Byzantium and Constantinople was associated with the rule of the Paleologo dynasty, which began in 1259. The first attacks of the Turks, led by Sultan Mehmed II, date to 1450. In 1453, Constantinople, after a long siege, submitted to Sultan Mehmed II, who declared the city the capital of the Ottoman Empire.
Mehmed’s policy was aimed at the peaceful coexistence of Muslims and Christians. Many Byzantine monuments of the city were rebuilt, the Orthodox church of St. Sophia was turned into a mosque, and the seral, the sultan's palace, appeared on the cape in the Golden Horn Bay. In the XVI-XVIII centuries, Istanbul became one of the richest cities in Europe. It was built many mosques, madrasas and palaces that have survived to our days. At the end of the First World War, Istanbul was occupied by the British and French. On October 13, 1923, Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) declared Ankara as the capital of the Turkish Republic. Modern Istanbul remains the center of cultural and spiritual life in Turkey, the largest tourist center located on the border of Europe and Asia.
Istanbul is a museum city with buildings of various eras: this is the famous Bosphorus Bridge, which stretches along the Black Sea as a symbol of good-neighborly relations between Europe and Asia; and Hippodrome, the center of political and sports events of ancient times; and Topkapi Palace, and the famous Aya-Sofia, and the magnificent Blue Mosque, and Edikule Fortress, and much more.
Modern Istanbul is a huge metropolis, which perfectly combines modern buildings and ancient architecture, which creates that unique flavor that can be found only here. This is a large trading port, where tourists and businessmen from all over the world come together.
