Bosporus

The liquid that makes this city groovy

The Bosporus is a narrow straight that separates the European part of Turkey with the large Asian landmass. Over the centuries, it has seen events of historical significance, and mythology: It is claimed that the Bosphorus is the source of Noah's flood and the legend of Noah's Ark. Today, it's mainly a place to enjoy life. Indulge in one of the plenty seaside bars and restaurants, or just stroll along it's shore.

  • There are so many ways to enjoy the Bosphorus - you can stroll around, and eat grilled fish just caught form the incoming fishing boats, or you can have a coffee right next to the water. And at night, you can party!
