Cosmopolitan Istanbul meets the residental area of Istanbul by crossing the Bosphorus Bridge, the calmest ferry ride of my life.

Wonderful to experience this bridge construction and to admire all the engineering skills which went into this civil project to fulfill this awesome cross-over between two continents: Asia & Europe. Congratulations to all the engineers and workers! You also get beautiful views of the Bosphorous from both sides of the bridge. On the Asian side there is a hill top... More

That was a terrific experience to travel on this bridge. At one end of this bridge is Asia and other end its Europe. It was built on the famous Bosphorus River and link 2 continents, this is an unique feature (Bridge between 2 continents).

The cruise down the strait is an experience. The short 2 hour trip is advisable as opposed to the full trip. Can get extremely hot. The blending of the eastern and western cultures is amazing!

I run over this bridge in the Marathon Race (November 2013). It is marvelous. You stay in Asia and after some metres you are in Europe!

This beautiful, large bridge is huge and it connects Asian Istanbul to European Istanbul. I don't think most people realize that Istanbul lies in Europe and Asia, as the two are separated by the Bosphorus Strait; most of Turkey exists in Asia. We had a beautiful view of the bridge from our room at the Ritz. At night, the bridge... More

This is something you do not want to miss. Take a cruise to the Asian side across the Bosphorus and you will see what a fantastic experience this is. I have been to Istanbul five times and have done this trip across the Bosphorus twice. I can't seem to get enough of this breath taking view. A great experience. You... More

They light the bridge up at night times. If you want to gt a good view of the bridge I suggest you do it from Ortakoy. We went to the Reina restaurant / night club and had a great view of the bridge from there.
