Istanbul — Turkey’s largest city and one of the largest cities in the world, a sea port, a major industrial-commercial and cultural center of Turkey. The former capital of Roman, Byzantine, Latin and Ottoman empires. Located on the shores of the Bosphorus. Istanbul is located in a hilly area in the Northwest of Turkey on both banks of the Bosphorus Strait and to the South by the Marmara sea shores. The main part of the city is in Europe, less in Asia. In turn, the European part of the city is divided into two parts by the Golden horn. Istanbul has a very good geographical location — city located in two parts of the world on the way from Europe to Asia and from the Black sea to the Marmara sea and later in the Mediterranean.
This bridge is just a few minutes to get from one part of the world to another. Exchanged through the Bosporus, he joined the two shores of Istanbul – Europe and Asia. He was the first suspension bridge built across the Bosphorus, so it was called the First Bosphorus bridge.
