Flying to Istanbul

Turkey's crowning glory

Tropical climate

18 degrees

3 hours and 20 minutes

Istanbul is Turkey's crowning glory. The best of European and Asian culture meet here, and this is reflected in the city’s inhabitants themselves. Turkish hospitality shines through as soon as you land at the huge airport in Istanbul.


Places to visit in Istanbul

Be sure to pay a visit to Galata Bridge, where rows of fanatical fishermen cast their rods to catch fresh fish for the market. The phenomenon makes a real impression in a city of this magnitude. Because Istanbul is huge, it is the third largest in Turkey. However, there are ample cultural highlights in Istanbul to be enjoyed that still remain undiscovered. Istanbul's largest mosque was opened recently: Çamlıca Mosque. It can accommodate over sixty thousand worshippers. The mosque also includes a museum that’s accessible to non-believers. More than 99% of inhabitants in this metropolis are Muslim. Anyone in modest dress is welcome inside the many mosques.


Discover Istanbul

Looking for more adventure from your trip? Why not take a guided tour. Your guide will take you to places you might not otherwise come across. Interesting detail: there are also tours on quads! There are hundreds of tours to choose from. Including a tour to Troy to learn all about the Trojan war and see the world-famous Trojan Horse. A must-do experience!
