City Istanbul (“The City of Seven Hills”)
As Napoleon Bonaparte once said: “If the earth was a single state, Istanbul would be its capital”
Istanbul is a natural gateway as it is the only city which connects Europe and Asia with two bridges and sea route.
Reuters once wrote about the city: “Istanbul is classed as a megacity, those with a population of over 10 million people. Istanbul is rapidly becoming a major global policy nexus.”
As the oldest part of the city is built on seven hills, it is called “The City of Seven Hills”.
Each hill has a well-known mosque. Istanbul is a city which is very rich in terms of historical places and cultural diversity as it has a history as a capital city that witnessed four of the greatest empires in history: The Roman, The Byzantine, Latin and The Ottoman…
Three centuries ago, Alphonse de Lamartine recommended everyone to see the city by saying: “If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.”
