ISTANBUL AND CAPADOCIA





ESTAMBUL

Istanbul covers two continents, on one side Asia and the other Europe. In the heart of the city is the Bosphorus Strait, where the waters of the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara run and where the natural harbor of Horn of Gold is located.

It is the variety that predominates in this city that fascinates its visitors: museums, churches, palaces, mosques and bazaars seem inexhaustible. They include the Topkapi Palace (which was the administrative headquarters of the Ottoman Empire and the current holder of one of the richest collections in the world), the Imperial Mosques of Sultan Hamet (known as Blue Mosque), Soliman El Magnífico and Eyub, the Basilica of Santa Sofia, the Roman Hippodrome, among countless other attractions.

Cappadocia is located in the central region of the Anatolian peninsula, in Turkey. In an area of about fifty kilometers in diameter, the landscapes, with countless valleys, canyons, hills and some of the strangest rock formations on the planet, surprise you with their whimsical and unique shapes on the planet.
