That feeling when you know that you are standing just between two continents! Looking at Bosphorus, boats, seagulls, sunset! Don't miss that feeling! :D

Take time out of your day to see this bridge from the water. My wife and I took the Sehir Haltari Cruise and we went under the bridge and WOW just an amazing structure. The boat ride stopped for a second to let us take photos. You can see all of Istanbul from this bridge - walk from each end... More

I took the Big Bus Tour Istanbul and I definetely enjoyed sightseeing from this nice bridge.. You can see almost the whole city from here... from the modern Levent to Besiktas, Beyoglu, Sultanahmet, Yenikapi.. also the picturesque areas near the Bosphorus between the two bridges.. It was an absolutely nice experience.. A must-see in Istanbul.

The huge bridge linking the two continents is one of Istanbul must-see attraction. In my opinion the best way to see the bridge is by taking the Sehir Hatlari Bosphorus cruise which will take you beneath the bridge. Furthermore, another way of getting great photographs of the bridge is by taking the ferry to the magnificent Ortakoy mosque which offers... More

Walk to the middle and straddle Europe and Asia. Not a long walk but the view is wonderful. If you walk back to the European side go under the Bridge. There are a number of Restaurants there. We eat at the first one and had a wonderful Fish Sandwich for $3.00. This is a must see. Near the Spice Bizarre... More

If you're interested in engineering, this bridge is just gonna amaze you as much as it did to me. Opened in 1973, it connects Asia and Europe. As of today, it is the 23rd longest suspension bridge span in the world.

On our recent cruise stop in Istanbul, where the ship stayed overnight, we had a spectacular view of the Bosphorus Bridge from our ship, as our cabin was at the back of the ship. After dark, there was a wonderful light show from the bridge and when morning came, an incredible sunrise. We had gone on a river cruise on... More
