Istanbul, located on both the continents of Europe and Asia, is known as a cultural melting pot, and the city?s architecture certainly lives up to that reputation. Over time, Istanbul has served as a capital for Roman, Byzantine, Latin and Ottoman Empires. Each period built a new architectural layer on top of the old, and many of these monuments remain intact. Thus, the city is a beacon for historical and modern architecture coexistence.

There are a lot of cities and regions in the world today that you can refer to as "a culture that has been influenced both by the West and the East" but Istanbul is THE location where the West and the East came together and gave birth to something UNIQUE.
