It changes. There is a large population of Muslims, but Turkey istheoretically a secular country. Sunni Muslims make-up themajority, but there is also a large population of Al…evis (approx.1.3 million live in Istanbul). There is still a Christianpopulation (mainly Orthodox Armenians, Syrian Christians, and asmall Greek population) in Istanbul, but it has been dwindlingsince the events of 1915. Non-Muslims made up approx. 50% of thepopulation of Istanbul in 1914. They now number around 100,000.There is also a small Jewish population estimated to be around3,000.
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?"
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.
