Description

You will be picked up from your hotel and be transported to Eminonu dock. The cruise ferry will commence its 90-minute non-stop tour to the Second Bosphorus Bridge and back, with a visit to the historical Eminonu district.

Cruising the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul, you can see how the city and the Ottoman world have gradually changed. By the 18th century, the old center and the palace began to extend beyond the boundaries of the city. The Sultan and his entourage started to build new residences in a sophisticated Western style on the banks of the Strait.

These mansions were built in a way that enabled one to admire the beauty of the Bosphorus. The houses faced the water, and there was usually a huge garden in which a harem could be built behind the houses. This new style pleased not only the Turkish aristocracy. In fact, more and more European diplomats moved into gorgeous embassies on the waterfront.

The Bosphorus became similar to the Grand Canal of Venice, being a place where people could demonstrate their power and wealth.
