Dating back to 8500 years ago, Istanbul is a breathtaking city and a rising regional star with its ever increasing economic and social activities. As Napoleon once said, “If the world was only one country istanbul would be its capital”

Straddling the Bosphorus strait, which separates the Black Sea and Marmara Sea, Istanbul is the only city in the world that lies on two continents. Thanks to its position as a bridge between Europe and Asia, it has been home to many cultures and ethnicities over the centuries, from the Balkans to Anatolia, Black Sea to the Mediterranean.

the city is home to 14 million people today, it keeps growing in terms of population with the rapid industrialization process that began in the 1950s. Offering a vibrant nightlife, Istanbul is also the hub of arts, music and education in addition to being Turkey’s financial and industrial capital.

Being a proud University city, Istanbul houses a total of 56 universities providing high-quality education to 680 thousand students.

Just think of a city where it is possible to cross from one continent to another in 15 minutes by ferry! Forming a bridge between two continents, the city’s strategic position allowed it to play a major role in world history. Having been incorporated into the anterior, each and every single civilization has given way to the birth of a “supra-civilization”, and every culture has undoubtedly contributed to the making of modern Turkey. All these elements have transformed Istanbul into a mesmerizing and mysterious metropolis as well as they helped it become a city to remember.
