About this location

Istanbul

istanbul Photo Istanbul (UK:, or US: or ; Turkish: İstanbul [isˈtanbuɫ] (listen)), known between c. 660 BCE and 330 CE as Byzantium, and between 330 and 1930 CE as Constantinople, is the most populous town in Turkey and Europe (including the Asian side within the town borders). It is the countrys economic, cultural and historic center. Istanbul is a transcontinental town in Eurasia, straddling the Bosporus strait (which separates Europe and Asia) between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies on the European side and about a third of its population lives on the Asian side. With a total population of around 15 million residents, Istanbul is one of the worlds most populous cities, ranking as the worlds fourth-largest town proper and the largest European city. The town is the administrative center of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (coterminous with Istanbul Province). Istanbul is viewed as a bridge between the East and West.
Founded under the name of Byzantion (Βυζάντιον) on the Sarayburnu promontory around 660 BCE, the town grew in size and influence, becoming one of the most important cities in history. After its reestablishment as Constantinople in 330 CE, it served as an imperial capital for almost 16 centuries, during the Roman Byzantine (330–1204), Latin (1204–1261), Palaiologos Byzantine (1261–1453) and Ottoman (1453–1922) empires. It was instrumental within the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times, before the Ottomans conquered the town in 1453 CE and transformed it into an Islamic stronghold and the seat of the Ottoman Caliphate.The citys strategic position on the historic Silk Road, rail networks to Europe and the Middle East, and the only sea route between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean have produced a cosmopolitan populace. While Ankara was chosen instead as the new Turkish capital after the Turkish War of Independence, and the citys name was changed to Istanbul, the town has maintained its prominence in geopolitical and cultural affairs. The population of the town has increased tenfold from the 1950s, as migrants from across Anatolia have moved in and town limits have expanded to accommodate them. Arts, music, film, and cultural festivals were established towards the end of the 20th century and continue to be hosted by the town today. Infrastructure improvements have produced a complex transportation network within the city.
Approximately 12.56 million foreign visitors arrived in Istanbul in 2015, five years after it was named a European Capital of Culture, making the town the worlds fifth most popular tourist destination. The citys biggest attraction is its historic center, partially listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its cultural and entertainment hub can be found across the citys natural harbor, the Golden Horn, within the Beyoğlu district. Considered a global city, Istanbul has one of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies within the world. It hosts the headquarters of many Turkish companies and media outlets and accounts for more than a quarter of the countrys gross domestic product. Hoping to capitalize on its revitalization and rapid expansion, Istanbul has bid for the Summer Olympics five times in twenty years."
