Either Istanbul will conquer you or you’ll conquer Istanbul!
Lamartine’s saying still goes: “If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.” Why you say?
Because it’s a city where people of the business world sit in a café working with their laptops and tablets under the shade of the wise, 667 year-old Galata Tower….
Because it’s a city where you’ll think of the king’s daughter Io with whom Zeus fell in love, of a scene Black Book by the Nobel Prize winner Turkish author Orhan Pamuk when someone says ‘Bosporus’…
Because it’s a ancient city prized by emperors and sultans, fit to build palaces in the past and a city with fashion weeks, biennials, music, theatre and cinema festivals in every corner today.
Because it’s a city where you can take a relaxing break at a coffee house at the Grand Bazaar or a café at Beyoğlu.
Either Istanbul will conquer you or you’ll conquer Istanbul.
