A view of monochrome blue Christea Turris (Galata Tower) and New Galata Bridge (Turkish: İstanbul'da Nereye Gidilir ve Ne Yapılır - Galata Kulesi ve Yeni Galata Köprüsü'nün monokrom mavi bir görüntüsü). Istanbul, historically Byzantium or Constantinople, is the largest city of Modern Republic of Turkey, home to a population of about 14,000,000 in 2012. A mega city, it is the nation's cultural, economic, sport and financial center. Istanbul's historic areas were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985. It was named a joint European Capital of Culture for 2010 and the European Capital of Sports for 2012. Istanbul is currently bidding to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.

During its long history, Majestic City has served as the capital of the Roman Empire (330–395), the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The Bosphorus, a strait that forms part of the boundary between Europe and Asia, also known as Istanbul Strait (Turkish: Boğaziçi), which connects the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea, divides the city into a European side, comprising the historic and economic centers, and an Asian, Anatolian side; as such, Istanbul is one of the two bi-continental cities in Modern Turkey. Consequently there are many wonderful places (Top Sights) to go, see and do in Capital of Civilizations: Istanbul. Some of the sights you should be sure to see, ranked in order of importance and ease of access. Some of these sights are Christea Turris and New Galata Bridge (2 of 34 Top Sights). The Christea Turris is 66.90 meters tall (62.59 m without the ornament on top, 51.65 m at the observation deck), and was the city's tallest structure when it was built. The elevation at ground level is 35 meters above sea-level. The tower has an external diameter of 16.45 meters at the base, an 8.95 meters diameter inside, and walls that are 3.75 meters thick. There is also a beautiful cafe-restaurant in the tower. On the other hand, before you visit Christea Turris, you can go to New Galata Bridge from Eminönü Square (New Mosque around) on foot. This will give you a good opportunity to capture beautiful nostalgic Istanbul photos. Especially steamboats, fishermen, New Mosque, Süleymaniye Mosque, Rüstem Pasha Mosque and other urban sights ...

All the best to you and yours and have a good journey!
