Arriving in Istanbul
Sitting astride the Bosphorus, the iconic city of Istanbul bridges Asia and Europe both culturally and physically, giving it a unique perspective on both cultures, and a character unlike any other major city.
This energetic, frenetic city has been at the very heart of trade between the two continents for thousands of years, and today is just as important strategically, and a natural magnet for tourists looking for a fascinating and unique location.
Book a flight to Istanbul with Qatar Airways and you’ll quickly discover the charm of the city for yourself. From lively markets and souqs to exclusive malls, beautiful mosques and spectacular forts, Istanbul has it all.
Istanbul’s myriad of ancient monuments date back to the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman periods. Most, including the Hagia Sophia, Topkapı Palace, Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), and Basilica Cistern are clustered around Sultanahmet Square, making a tour of some of the city’s finest attractions easy.
However, it is worth wandering a little further afield, and a stroll across the Golden Horn will bring you to Galata. This district to the north is full of its own attractions, including the Galata Tower, which provides visitors with magnificent panoramic views of the city.
If you’re interested in seeing some of the best examples of contemporary Turkish art then head to the Istanbul Modern on the waterfront.
A site of considerable religious importance and the home of another iconic image of Istanbul are the Galata Whirling Dervish Hall of Sufi Mevlevi order; you’ll find this to the north of the Galata Tower.
