Although it is a cliché to describe Istanbul as a city of East and West, it is quite true. Istanbul is the only city in the world spanning two continents. He was the capital of three empires and has long been a link between Europe and Asia. Not surprisingly, the city's culture reflects this division - a mix between Western culture and Middle Eastern culture. You can see a European city and oriental cupolas and minarets there.
