The vibrant and beautiful city of Istanbul is rich with history and culture; combining the influence of Middle East and Europe. Today the most famous city of Turkey is packed with chic boutique-hotels, fabulous restaurants, luxury shops and opulent spas, which makes it attractive visitors from all over the world.
Natural beauty of the Turkish coast harmoniously coexists with historical and modern architecture of the megapolis. Some of the legendary sites are Topkapi Palace museum, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque and the Hagia Sophia – one of the most important Byzantine monuments. In-between, in the very heart of this spiritual area, there is the Ayasofya Hürrem Sultan Hamam – a Turkish bath that was built in 1556 for sultans. Today, this gorgeous spa is one of the best in Istanbul.
