Istanbul is a modern city with a very ancient past. It is the only city in the world to be located on the continents of both Europe and Asia. Istanbul was the capital of three great empires in history: The Roman, the Byzantine and finally the Ottoman Empire.

The city still holds many of the great monuments of these times. Founded by the mythological King Byzas in the 7th century B.C.,it later became known during the time of the Emperor Constantine, as Constantinople. During the peak of the Byzantine Empire the St.Sophia was built and the great underground cisterns.

After Sultan Mehmet conquered the city in 1453, the city was adorned with more magnificent structures, such as the Suleymaniye Mosque of the great architect Sinan. There is more than just history to see in the multi-faceted city of Istanbul.
