Winter in Istanbul: Bosphorus Views


Saturday 15 August, 2015 by Uncle Spike

Riding the ferry boats back and forth across the Bosphorus is a magical thing. There are many many ferries, crisscrossing the channel between the European and Asian continents all day long, and well into the night.




You can see so much of the city.

On one side – the mosques, the palace, the history…




And on the other side – the city at large…

Of course, the Bosphorus is also well known for its commercial cargo and container traffic, linking the Aegean (and thereby the Mediterranean) and Black Seas.
