Horns of angry drivers, contrasting melodies in every street, cheerful celebrating crowds emerging out of nowhere along with imams calling out for prayer are just the tip of the iceberg. As they have been saying, Istanbul never sleeps.

    Istanbul is offering you a ton of attractions and events to keep you busy throughout your visit. The affluent history of the city gives you a wonderful chance to check out the architecture of the different eras. Don’t forget to visit the Topkapı Palace, primary residence of Ottoman Sultans, and Hagia Sophia, once known as the Church of Divine Wisdom.
