İSTANBUL EXPERIENCE

İstanbul's strategic position on the historic Silk Road, rail networks to Europe and the Middle East, and the only sea route between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean have produced a cosmopolitan populace, although less so since the establishment of the Turkish Republic in 1923.

Overlooked for the new capital during the interwar period, the city has since regained much of its prominence. The population of the city has increased tenfold since the 1950.

Approximately 12.56 million foreign visitors arrived in İstanbul in 2015, five years after it was named a European Capital of Culture, making the city the world's fifth most popular tourist destination.
