These photos are beautiful!! I can’t wait to visit this country one day!
Your photos of Istanbul are so colorful and vibrant. Such a culturally rich and diverse city and I really hope to be able to visit it someday.
Your photos of Istanbul are amazing! I was there about a year ago and I absolutely wish I had taken waayyy more photos! The pictures of the tea made me want some very badly – I will have to make some Mint Tea yet this evening! I loved so much about Istanbul, the religious sites were unbelievable!
Thanks for loving photos
Istanbul stole my heart when I was there. Thank you for Bringing it back to life for me in your photos.
Beautiful photos. Istanbul is so photogenic and one of my favourite cities. Been a while since I visited, I used to love making friends with all the cats!
A wonderful journey through Istanbul by photos. They really bring it alive. I have never been to Istanbul but have recently been watching the developments of Agia Sofia back into a mosque.
I love this photography tour! I think the night shot is the best of the city. It adds to the ambiance somehow. I am a sucker for a good archway so that is another favourite of mine.
Ah, you’re pictures are making me all sentimental. It’s been a couple of years that I haven’t been to Istanbul – and now…who knows when unlimited travel to Turkey will be possible again. Whereby, German journalists also tend to be a bit hesitant to travel to Turkey for political reasons. Neverthelesse, just beautiful images – thank you for sharing!
Thanks for loving it and I understand those reasons.
Istanbul is such an exciting and dramatic city to photograph. We love visiting there, and usually use it as an excuse for a layover, as we spend a lot of time in Turkey. The Galata Tower is a good place for a visit, because the vantage point from the top of the tower gives you a panoramic view of the city’s layout, and can help you plan your walking tour.
Yes this city is lovely and dramatic.
I have never been to Istanbul so, I had no idea what to expect when I started reading your post. These are amazing. The interior of the blue mosque. I just love how detailed it is. It is also nice to see the modern architecture in the area. Just the perfect balance that we need.
Thanks for loving it.
What an interesting place! I still can’t get over the gorgeous and intricate art on the walls. It is also super interesting how the huge old monuments contrast with that modern bridge. What an interesting place to visit.
I love the images! So beautiful and they make me feel like I was there! It has always fascinated me that the country is on 2 different continents. I love the look of the Blue Mosque and the colorful homes. The food looks delicious as well! I can’t wait until we are able to travel again and I am able to make it there.
You would love this bi-continental city
This virtual tour was very bright and cheery. Istanbul has been on my cards for long. Last year, I had my 2 hours halt at the airport but I could not step out to see the city. The airport had crazy handicrafts, sweets and other colourful souvenirs The architecture is fascinating and I am sure once everything is fine, I will be going to Istanbul some day… Would love to have some fresh fruits from there and that pomegranate juice.
Wow what a visual treat this was. Absolutely fantastic through high quality images.It was like being there for me. I loved every bit about Istanbul.Your story is beautifully done covering all the aspects when we look forward to when visiting a new city. I really love the colors all around including the houses, the streets and the restaurants.The bridge connecting the two continents is so historic and the view is so nice.
You would love this city as it is very picturesque.
I love that even though I cannot travel at the moment I was able to take this virtual tour of Istanbul. Such beautiful and colorful streets. I love how you have shown different aspects like the markets, or the houses, the shops with the rugs, the food – oh I wish I could taste the food. So much personality is showing though in your pictures and it made me feel as if I was there.
Thanks for loving my photos.
wow! with those photos you shared you toured me without spending a centavo. The murals and architectural designs are what I love most. The Hagia Sofia is truly a beauty and I want to spend more time here.
Thanks for loving this virtual tour of Istanbul.
All beautiful pictures and they transported me right back! I love the architecture too, especially Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Your aerial view from Galata Tower is gorgeous! Even the colorful streets of Istanbul and the people, the street art, all these pictures remind me of how lively it is and what an amazing experience to just walk around Istanbul, especially on the Istiklal Street!
These photos are certainly gorgeous and make me feel like I’m walking through history. I don’t know about you, but photos like these make me absolutely astonished because I often wonder at who else in history marveled at the same angle that I am examining right now. Beautiful collection!
Thanks for loving it
Hagia Sofia is an incredible place! I could stare at the ceiling all day. Such beauty! The grand bazaar would be very interesting to explore and see the culture! So much to take in!
Istanbul has been on my list for a long time, What an interesting city! Hagia Sophia looks so stunning. I have always wanted to walk down an umbrella street, they are so great for a photo op! I love the food photography, Im craving some turkish tea now!
You have listed the places to go in the exact order of how I would want it. For quite some time, I have been keen on seeing the Hagia Sofia and I know that I would be spending a lot of time there. Did not realize that Istanbul has so much of street art. Now that would be something to watch out for. I have always loved the Turkish markets.
You would love this place as it is hot pot of many cultures
Some brilliant photography here. Istanbul is high on my list. This city is absolutely stunning & paradise for photographers. I love HAGIA SOPHIA & it’s architecture
Thanks for this great post, it reminds me of my great trip to Istanbul a few years ago. What a fabulous city! Hagia Sofia was perhaps my favorite spot and you captured its interiors beautifully. Great street photos too!
Yes this city is has own charm.
Magnificent! I love those ceilings on the Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. So colorful! Your eyes must have been really dazzled. Those lamps in the market are also beautiful! That and a rug are definitely souvenirs to pick up. Did you try the Turkish hammams? What’s the experience like?
I was not having time for hammams and so missed it. Only 4 days in Istanbul is really very less as it has so much to see
All I have now is to travel via pictures and you just helped me do that in an amazing way. Istanbul looks colorful and so lovely through your pictures. I love all of them – whether it’s the mural art, the picture of the cat, streets of Istanbul, Bosphorus connecting two continents, you strolling in Grand Bazaar, must not forget to mention the grand interior of Hagia Sophia.
Istanbul really is a gem of a city! Everyone who has been raves about the great mix of culture and food. The Blue Mosque is on our list of places that we want to see up close as soon as we can safely travel. Now we are craving a cup of strong Turkish Tea and Donar Kabab. Thank you for sharing some beautiful pictures.
You would really love this city as it has lots of cultural vibes.
I also enjoyed hearing about the mingling of two cultures! I am not sure how Turkish tea taste but I would love to try it! The vibrant colors always leave me feeling inspired!
Thanks for this awesome photo guide. I love Turkey, you immersed me in memories.
On the travel wish list! Would love to visit Istanbul. Your post was a lovely picture walk through. The architecture looks stunning inside and out. I love all the colour in the buildings. Some beautiful views that show me why Istanbul needs to stay on my travel wish list.
