Istanbul Bosphorus sightseeing tour: Between Two Continents

On the map, the Bosphorus Strait looks like a thin strip of water dividing, and at the same time connecting Europe and Asia, the Black Sea with the Marmara Sea. On both sides, there are two banks of the majestic city, which for several centuries was the capital of the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman empires. These shores are crowned with ancient areas, fortresses, sultan's palaces, and mosques, which you can see as part of a tour of the Bosphorus in Istanbul.

More about the route

  • The Rumeli Hisar fortress, which in the past had a defensive function and was built in just 4 months.
  • Dolmabahce Palace.
  • The Maiden's Tower is a symbol of the historical capital of Turkey.


  • Bosphorus, without which not a single avenue about the city can do.
  • Sultan Mehmed Fatih, built at the end of the 20th century.
  • Sultan Selim Yavuz is a 2000-meter structure, opened several years ago.
  • The visiting card is the Galata Bridge, which was built 5 times and which now serves as both a ferry and a resting place for local residents and guests.

The Golden Horn is a natural bay formed 6,000 years ago. In the 7th century, the construction of Byzantium began in the southern part of the bay, the very one that was later renamed Constantinople, and then Istanbul.

Evening excursions in this area cause no less delight from meeting the sunset on the deck, when the rays of the setting sun paint everything around in a golden hue, and then give way to the glowing lights of nightlife, revealing new mesmerizing landscapes.
