Istanbul and Bosporus Charter Yachts and Gulets
Istanbul has served as a bridge between the continents of Asia and Europe since it was Constantinople in Ancient Greek times. It is one of the best cities in the world to see the harmony of modernism and tradition both combined with history. People love the culture, the skyline, the museums and the tea gardens dotted all around the city. Istanbul offers so much, so explore the city and discover the hidden gems as well as the tourist attractions.
While cruising on Bosphorus it is both exciting and stunning to see the skyscrapers on one side while seeing the old palaces and mosques such as Topkapı, Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia (old church turned into a mosque by the Ottomans) and relatively new Çırağan Palace on the other.
Being the bridge between these two continents, Istanbul has been ruled by many civilizations and you can see examples of all of these while cruising on Bosphrous, as well as many amazing mansions.
The Bosphorus offers some of the best clubs and nightlife in Turkey and many can even be entered directly from your charter boat. A charter on the Bosporus is an unforgettable mix of history, modern culture and pure beauty, and not to be missed on your next trip to Istanbul!
