–Istanbul Old Town–
Short History: Old Istanbul
Across the country, thousands of archaeological sites, historical sites and ancient cities, as well as magnificent landscapes and natural wonders. Since Roman times, Asiatic Turkey has been known as both “Asia Minor” and “Anatolia”.
These lands have been continuously inhabited since the Stone Age. Because Anatolia is a natural bridge between continents, no other country in the world has acquired many historical treasures. A reminder of thousands of years of history and on the banks of the Bosphorus in Istanbul stands in all its beauty and splendor, keeping alive the memories of his past.
There are many legends associated with the founding of Istanbul. The tradition tells that Byzas, son of King Nisos, planned to found a Greek colony of the Dorian city of Megara. Byzas consulted the oracle of Apollo at Delphi, which instructed Byzas to settle opposite the “Land of the Blind”. Leading a group of Megarian colonists, Byzas found a location where the Golden Horn, a great natural harbour, meets the Bosphorus and flows into the Sea of Marmara, opposite Chalcedon (modern day Kadıköy).
