Istanbul is a fantastic heritage of the Byzantine Empire and Constantinople, and its unique quality is that it lies on two continents. Europe and Asia are separated by the picturesque Golden Horn Bay. On the quiet Asian side live the wealthy citizens, while the European part is a busy center for business life, and also the ancient city core, full of old monuments, can be found here. There is the Aia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Yedikule fortress and the Topkapi Palace. And then there is the colorful, loud and exotic Grand Bazaar, favorite target of the tourists. Let us go to the house of Pierre Loti, drink a cup of Turkish coffee and enjoy the sight of the Marble Sea and the city of the thousand minarets
