Istanbul is a megacity with an incredible population of 12.6 million. The Blue Mosque is beautiful and it's something you should not miss!

The Haydarpasa Station is the main station for the turkish railways. From here you can catch national and international trains.

I also visited the Istanbul Bhosphorus which is a strait between the European part of Istanbul and the Asian part of Istanbul.

The most famous mosque in Istanbul is the Sultan Ahmed also called Blue Mosque for the blue tiles inside the construction. The Metrocity is a modern shopping mall perfect for gift and souvenirs. There are more than 140 shops in the Metrocity.
