The Galata Bridge which spans the Golden Horn is the perfect symbol for todays Istanbul, which has always been at the crossroads of the old and the new and of east and west. Part open-air museum, part modern metropolis, it has been exposed to numerous cultural influences over the millennia, each leaving behind a little of their essence. This brand-new guide in the bestselling CITIX60 series explores everything Istanbul has to offer an open-minded traveler, from the modernism of Atatrk Cultural Centre, to the neoclassicism of the Haydarpa?a Terminal. Lose yourself in Yelde?irmeni, where international street artists make their mark, or the Dolapdere Sunday Market where treasures can be found for a pittance. Sample masterful traditional cuisine at the Asltane restaurant before drinks at the ultra hip Zeplin bar. Serefe!
