Istanbul is located in Turkey. It is the only city that spans two continents (Europe and Asia). Istanbul is one of the greatest cities in the world and as of 2007 has a po…pulation in excess of 12 million. Instanbul is located in southeast Europe, although Turkey (the country in which it is located) is mainly in Asia. Istanbul includes part of the Bosphorus strait in its urban area. The Bosphorus divides Europe from Asia and by crossing the Bosphorus bridge you can cross from one continent to another. Therefore Istanbul is in both Europe and Asia, the only metropolis in the world to straddle two continents.
14,697,164 (2007) With the latest official results, it is said that Istanbul has 14 million people living in itself. In some cases, some academics argu…e that the population is more than that, because there are lots of tourists coming everyday and also there are lots of migrants also living at the city without officially having settlement. they seem to live in other cities, but they didn't show that they have migrated. According to a poll in 2007 the population is 10,291,102. Population (2008) 12,697,164 For the source and more detailed information concerning your request, click on the related links section (Wikipedia) indicated directly below this answer section.
Europe and Asia. It's slap bang in the middle of the two...
Istanbul is in Turkey, and Turkey is a Moslem country. From what I know, it is about 98% Moslem, though the veiling of women is not obligatory.
1453 is the year that Constantinople was conquered by the Ottomans. There is a large discrepancy over the exact year that the city was named Istanbul. Different historians and… different books offer opposing opinions. Though it may have been referred to as Istanbul earlier on, the name was officially changed from Constantinople in 1930 under the founder of Turkey, Kemal Ataturk. The varying answers among such a seemingly simple question point to the overall complexity and intrigue of one of the world's most important and interesting cities.
No, Istanbul is not a state or a country, it is the biggest city/province of Turkey.
It is not currently a capitol. It was the capitol of the Byzantine Empire in the 3-5th centuries, and an important port city always. It is located in Turkey.
You can visit Blue mosque, take a walk along the Bosphorus or go to luxery shpo centers as Istinye Park or Ak Merkez. There are more then 10m people so you may not get b…ored.
There are many historical sites to visit including palaces like the Dolmabace and the Topkapi. The Princes Islands make a day's visit. There is the Bazaar, the Beyazit Tower a…nd Istiklal Street as well as the Art Museum, the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sophia. There is also some of the best food to be had on the planet, including Lokhum, Kebab, Baklava and Turkish breakfasts. The waterfront provides a good walk and villages like Kadikoy, Ortakoy, Mecediyekoy, Uskudar etc also make a great visit. It is worth keeping in mind that Istanbul is massive, and most tourists see very little of it. It is a city where east meets west, where traditional thought meets progressive vision, and those contrasts are both visible and impressive if you get away from the typical tourist attractions. If you truly want to enjoy and get a feel for Istanbul, do everything you can to directly experience the culture and the people. Ask not "what is there to do in Istanbul, as only, what ISN'T there to do?"
