Things to know about Istanbul

Unforgettable holiday in a unique atmosphere

The metropolis of Istanbul in Turkey, with at least 14, but probably 15 to 18 million inhabitants, was the capital of this empire, which at times spanned three continents, from 1453 until the end of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War. Apartments and vacation rentals in Istanbul provide close contact to the unique historical atmosphere that you will feel everywhere. Istanbul fascinates with its unique location on the continents of Europe and Asia, which are separated here only by the strait of the Bosporus. On the European shore are the districts of Beyoglu, Eminönü, Eyüp and Fatih. The historic district of Sultanahmet is also located here, which has many

Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Also worth seeing are the districts on the Asian Bosporus bank such as Üsküdar and Kadiköy. Istanbul is characterized by its incomparable location not far from the Strait of the Dardanelles and the Mediterranean Sea of Marmara, which is connected to the Black Sea via the Bosporus. Holidaymakers renting apartments in Istanbul usually appreciate a location not far from the historic districts on the European side, as many sights such as the Topkapi Sarayi, the Dolmabahce Palace, the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque are concentrated here in a very small space.

Historical attractions every step of the way

Most guests renting apartments in Istanbul enjoy the oriental flair of the city and benefit from the proximity of the unique sights of antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Ottoman period. Among the ancient monuments are the Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya), which was the most important church of Christianity until the conquest of the city by the Turks, the Sultanahmet Camii, known as the "Blue Mosque" with its fascinating blue tile decoration and the Süleymaniye Camii, which shows the Ottoman architecture at its peak. The unique underground cistern ("Yerebatan Sarayi") dates back to antiquity,

the former Hippodrome, of which only three columns have survived, and the imposing Theodosian land wall, of which about 6.7 km have survived to this day. Many guests are interested in shopping in the so-called Covered Bazaar and its approximately 4,500 shops, the Egyptian Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar, which gives a live oriental feeling. Many guests love the hustle and bustle around Taksim Square and Galata Bridge as well as the lively restaurant, club and pub scenes in neighborhoods such as Beyoglu, Nisantasi, Levent and Ortaköy.

Istanbul is the only city in the world that lies on two continents: Asia and Europe.

Our top 5 tips for Istanbul

The Galat Tower at the Golden Horn
The Galat Tower at the Golden Horn

The imposing domed church of Hagia Sophia, built in Greek style in the 6th century, was the most imposing church of Christendom for almost a thousand years. It still impresses today with its imposing 53 m high dome, which has a cross section of 31 m. The dome is a very impressive sight. Unique is the preserved interior decoration with great mosaics.

In the immediate vicinity of the Hagia Sophia lies the impressive Sultanahmet Camii, which is often called the "Blue Mosque" because of its interior decoration of blue or turquoise tiles. The mosque, completed in 1616, is the largest and most magnificent mosque in Istanbul and was built according to plans by Sinan student Mehmet Aga. The six minarets and the unique equipment with valuable blue Iznik tiles are remarkable.

The Süleymaniye Mosque was built from 1550 to 1557 according to the plans of the architect Sinan and is regarded as a testimony of an unadulterated Ottoman architectural style. This mosque fascinates by its perfect proportions and by its emphatically simple and yet impressive equipment.

The Topkapi-Sarayi on the Sea of Marmara was the official residence of the Sultan until 1853/56. The complex, grouped around four inner courtyards, was built from 1468 and later extended and supplemented several times. The palace, now classified as a museum, has a treasure chamber with unique exhibits.

5 The Dolmabahce Palace, built in the middle of the 19th century, was the last sultan's residence. Their architectural style is usually referred to as "Ottoman classicism". Contemporary European influences are unmistakable. The building is extremely lavishly equipped. For the gilding of the ceilings alone 14 tons of gold were needed.
