DUBAI MEDIA CITY, UAE - Oct. 10, 2023 - PRLog -- Journey to the Historical İstanbul

İstanbul is one of the world's most ancient cities while you are exploring the city's bustling streets and picturesque lanes. As the former capital of the Eastern Roman and Ottoman Empires, İstanbul presents a unique perspective on the past and the present – and you can observe first-hand how this modern and energetic metropolis arose at the crossroads of Asia and Europe. The always lively Historical Peninsula takes on a different ambience in October, freshened by the breezes on three sides from the Bosphorus, the Marmara Sea and the Golden Horn. The Historical Peninsula offers a wealth of historical sites, including the Hagia Sophia, the Basilica Cistern and Topkapı Palace. At the same time, across the Golden Horn, the Galata Tower's observation deck has panoramic views of the city in its autumn glory. Another splendid Bosphorus viewpoint is the Maiden's Tower.

Visiting İstanbul's Museums in Autumn is a Transformative Experience...

The city's museums are among the highlights of İstanbul's autumn art and culture scene. The İstanbul Archaeological Museums, set in the garden of Topkapı Palace and where archaeology comes alive, house one of the world's richest collections. The İstanbul Painting and Sculpture Museum, Türkiye's first plastic arts museum, presents an illuminating perspective on Turkish art history from the late 19th century to the late twentieth century, the last periods of the Ottoman Empire. The newly opened Hagia Sophia History Museum, a few steps from the iconic Hagia Sophia, takes visitors on an unforgettable journey through the approximately seventeen-hundred-year history of this important building, offering visitors a one-of-a-kind immersive exploration of the Hagia Sophia's storied history. Türkiye's first modern and contemporary art museum, the İstanbul Modern, now housed in a dramatic Renzo Piano-designed structure overlooking the Bosphorus, hosts acclaimed temporary exhibitions and the most innovative examples of modern Turkish art.

Exceptional Discovery: İstanbul Cuisine

Along with its other assets, İstanbul is also famed for its gastronomy. This Michelin-starred gastro-city is not only home to illustrious Michelin-starred restaurants. It is also a centre where the country's distinct culinary heritage is displayed in street delicacies, venerable restaurants, and dining establishments serving the finest examples of local and global cuisine. Mild October evenings create an utterly unique experience of savouring the rich flavours of Turkish cuisine and Turkish wines amidst a dazzling backdrop of the historical Bosphorus.
