Why the city of Istanbul?
However, there is a lot to be said for its beauty and historical background, from Hagia Sophia, the Bosphorus Strait, Topkapi Palace, to the nine islands of Istanbul, the most famous of which are Buick Ada, Hibeli Ada, Borgaz Ada, and Kinali Ada.
Besides, Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and its economic center. The Bosphorus strait separates the two continents of Asia and Europe, and Istanbul is divided into the Asian and European parts by the Bosphorus and the Sea of Marmara.
Istanbul, with a population of 15,519,267 million, is one of the world's largest metropolises. The city's popularity has declined, but Turkey's economic hub cannot be ignored, especially in the fashion, clothing, and related industries.
It is clear that this super city has attracted many investors.
In addition to economic destinations, Istanbul annually hosts a large number of tourists from all over the world, who are attracted to visit the historic sites, excursions, and entertainment on the islands of this beautiful city.
This beautiful city is hot and humid in summer and cold, rainy and snowy in winter, and the humidity is often high.
Istanbul has two international airports
Ataturk International Airport
Istanbul Ataturk International Airport is the leading international airport and also the most significant and largest airport in the big city of Istanbul due to the number of passengers.
The international airport opened in 1924 in Istanbul's Yesilkoy district and was of the same name at the beginning of its establishment.
It was renamed in 1980 in honor of the first president and founder of the Republic of Turkey (Mustafa Kemal Ataturk).
Istanbul Ataturk International Airport is located in the European part of the city of Istanbul, 24 km west of the center of Istanbul. To access Ataturk Airport, you can use a car or public transport.
