What’s your dream tourist destination__ either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit? What

about it speaks to you?

I am interested to visit, Istanbul, a city in Turkey. It’s a transcontinental city in Eurasia. It’s commercial and historical side lies in the European side and about a third of its population lives on the Asian side Of Eurasia.

It was founded on the Sarayburnu promontory around 660 B.C. as Byzantium, it is now known as Istanbul.

Approximately 11.6 million foreign visitors arrived in Istanbul in 2012, two years after it was named a European capital of culture.It’s the fifth most popular destination.

Istanbul was officially adopted as the sole name of the city in 1930.

A person from the city is an Istanbullu(plural: Istanbullular). In English they are called Istanbullite.
