About Istanbul Hotels
Visiting Istanbul: The City of Seven Hills
Istanbul in Turkey is the fifth largest city in the world with regards to population. The city of Istanbul was built on seven hills; hence, it has earned its name rightly. However, Istanbul is also called ‘The City that lies on two continents’. How is this possible though? Well, Istanbul is such a large city, that a part of it lies in the continent of Europe, while the other part of it lies in the continent of Asia. While the European side of Istanbul is buzzing with business centres, hustling crowds and buildings all around, the Asian side of Istanbul is more laid back, with scattered hotels, crowds of locals and tourists and plenty of beautiful tourist attractions.
