As we stated in a previous post, we have been working hard on building our Live Guide Section. You will be happy to know that we wrote plenty of interesting articles about lovely and incredible locations around the world.

Today we will expose more on our Istanbul section. The first article from this series is about Istanbul’s areas. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the fifth most populated in the world with its 12.8 million inhabitants. Located on the border between Asia and Europe, Istanbul is delimited by the Bosphorus Strait and the Golden Horn. It is the only city in the world located on two continents: Istanbul’s European side is called Thrace and the Asian is called Anatolia. The city of Istanbul is organized into 27 districts which form what is called The Greater Istanbul, while another 12 districts complete what is called the Istanbul province. The city is mainly formed by three main areas: The historic peninsula, the districts of Üsküdar and Kadıköy and the districts of Beyoğlu and Beşiktaş.  Read more about Istanbul areas here.

We also want to share with you our opinion on Istanbul’s gastronomy. You can read more about the delicious food and ingredients Turkish people use here.

If you are visiting Istanbul any time soon, you could check our beautiful apartments, and attend the Istanbul Gastronomy Festival, and share photos and thoughts with us.
