This strait is 32 kilometers long. But its width varies from 500 meters to
3 kilometers.
The Ottomans controlled the Bosphorus by two castles.

Europe meets Asia at this geographical part of the world. There are two
suspension bridges which connect the two continents.

In ancient Greek, bous is cow and poros is crossing place.
Both make Bosphorus,which means the place where the

Bosphorus has a rich military history. Byzas
were one of the earliest to be present in the region. Later

Salajak promenade at the weekends. Kanlıca and Sarıyer is
also full of Turks enjoying the beauty and grandeur of Boğaziçi.
Tarabya -Therapeia-is popular at nights with its costly
restaurants, where local celebrities sing and raqı is consumed
with fish. Arnavutköy is also packed with anglers and strollers .
Since private ownership invades the most there is little to enjoy
on the Asian coastline. Beylerbeyi,Kuzguncuk, Çubuklu and
Beykoz are some of the few areas which offer relief gaps to
pedestrians roaming on the coast.
  In good old days Ortaköy used

to be a peaceful student resort.But Today people flood to
the Sunday Market Populate the bars and cafes.

least a dozen toppings which may vary from various
vegetables like carrots, peas meat products like
sausages, salami and special local sauces, salads
and creams.

restaurants as you have only two hours, rush uphill to the castle, for a perfect view
of Bosphorus leading to Black Sea. If starving buy a fish or mussel sandwich from
a take away shop ( $ 2.- approx ).

sugar yoghurt and Khediv

Bosphorus has cute fisherman
villages on Black sea.Rumelifeneri
is one of them.
  Yeniköy is the fashionable
area on European side.

glad she was in Bosphorus.

resisting to concrete.
