Almina Hotel Istanbul in Turkey
Istanbul, a metropolis of 15 million people, is often described as 'the crossroads of Europe and Asia' - a heaving bazaar-city of carpets and caravanserais with an imperial history stretching back for more than 1,500 years. The city center, including the areas referred to as 'the old city' and 'the new city', which are separated by the estuary of the Golden Horn, is located on the European side of Istanbul, on the Western side of the Bosphorus Strait. Its varied history is mirrored by the stunning Ottoman mosques, classical columns, Byzantine structures, ancient city walls and fine churches. A fine example of this is Haghia Sophia, or Church of Divine Wisdom and Topkapi Palace is another Istanbul must-see.
