The best of both worlds

Istanbul is the only city in the world that is situated on two continents - Europe and Asia. The two continents are connected by the Bosphorus bridges. The Bosphorus is a large river that divides the two sides of Istanbul. There is a Greek saying, roughly translated,"I need to drink the Bosphorus", when times are tough others need a drink but the Greeks need a river full of alcohol!

Both sides of Istanbul are equally interesting, lots to see and do. And no just because its Asia it doesn't mean there are a lot of Chinese people there *acts like she wasn't expecting to see a China Town in Istanbul*
