View of Istanbul in a mountain
This is the view from Wyndham Grand Istanbul
Istanbul, with her natural beauties and rich history, is a town with high local and international tourism potential, and from this view point one of the most attractive towns of the world. Besides her natural beauties, Istanbul has a lot of historical works remaining from the Byzantium and Ottoman periods.Especially the trio of Topkapi Palace, St Sophia Museum located in Sultanahmet Section and the Kariye Museum are the places which attract the utmost interest of foreign tourists. I think Istanbul is must see world destination. The layers of religions, empires, architecture, and beautiful water views, along with a fully modern society are so rich. It is an ideal combination of novel, enlightening and familiar. Istanbul like London, New York or Paris – is one of the world’s great cities. Superbly situated either side of the blue ribbon of the Bosphorus Strait separating Europe from Asia it is, unlike any other city in the world, split between two continents.The city were less accessible than it is, I still think it would be worth the stop.

Last year we have been t Istanbul – highly recommended. The city is steeped in history and there is so much to see. We stayed in the Celine Hotel, which is ideal for visitors seeking a superb central location and a decent breakfast. It is fairly obvious, but the earlier you get to the main sights, notably the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace and the Cisterns, the shorter the queues will be. This does not apply to the Grand Bazaar, which is relatively quiet and hassle-free towards the end of the day. The Galata Tower is worth the queue for the stunning views, and the Bosporus boat trip, providing the opportunity to rest our feet for a couple of hours
