What Can You Get Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise and Istanbul’s Egyptian Bazaar Tour?

The Golden Horn is a natural harbor that also known for its high level of safety. It has been an essential component in the growth of Istanbul. The inlet creates a divide along the length of the European shore. Its length is perhaps around 8 kilometers. So, the point where it meets the Bosphorus is where it is at its broadest. At the very end of this tributary, there are two streams that empty into this inlet.

In this place, the air filled with the alluring fragrances of cinnamon, caraway, saffron, mint, thyme, and every other herb and spice imaginable. An unforgettable journey between the two continents, Europe and Asia, along the Bosphorus, passing by the Dolmabahçe and Beylerbeyi Palaces, wooden villas and mansions, and ending at the Rumeli Fortress offered. Before Mehmet the Conqueror acquired control of Istanbul in 1453, the city besieged numerous times; yet, with the assistance of the Roman city walls, Istanbul was able to withstand each siege and remain independent.
