What a city! Istanbul really exceeded all my expectations! It's a totally different world, culture & history than the one of my hometown. I've rarely visited a city with so many contrasts in so many respects. Every neighborhood within this city with 15 million [!] citizens has it's own charm, style & people. I got a lot to post about Istanbul, this was just the kick-off with my snapshots of a city where I used every minute optimal to do as many things possible, love it!!
