Istanbul is unique – the city where East meets West, it is the only city in the world that straddles two continents, Europe and Asia. This gives Istanbul it’s multicultural atmosphere. Spires and domes of mosques, medieval architecture dominate the skyline. Although not the capital, Istanbul is the heart of Turkey!Sultanahmet – This is the old part of the city, with cobblestoned streets and narrow lanes. You should definitely base yourself here if you want to be walking distance from all the main attractions in Sultanahmet square.
The city was known as "Pelopia" but it was named Thyateira by king Seleucus I Nicator in 290 BC because being at war with Lysimachus and hearing that he had a daughter born, called this city 'thuateira', from Greek thugater, thugatera, meaning 'daughter'. In classical times, Thyatira stood on the border between Lydia and Mysia.
