If you go here and don't visit one of Istanbul's historic hammams, you deserve a spanking. That said, the experience here is over the top and you'll feel like a sultan. Well-trained therapists and a gorgeous facility. A nice mix of Turkish tradition and modern indulgence. Guests get a 50% discount on weekdays so let that be additional encouragement to stay at the hotel.
Bosphorus bridge Its a long beautiful bridge which connects Istanbul (Europe part) and Asia part.
You will see this beautiful suspension bridge at its best when you take a cruise on the Bosphorus. It is a very important feat of engineering, connecting Europe to Asia. Its design is iconic, and it is a symbol for the city, rather like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
The Bosphorus Strait has to be one of the most interesting waterways in the world. It divides Asia and Europe, Istanbul is on both sides, and it is the only way to get to the Black Sea. You should take a one or two hour cruise and enjoy the interesting architecture on both sides. You will see mosques, palaces, forts, and huge summer homes. It is a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
