“Beautifully lit at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went on a Bsphorus cruise on board Sabah Ruzgari, a beautiful yacht owned by friends. So we passed under the bridge twice in day time and twice at night. The light display is amazing and very colorful.

“Love this bridge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The scenery is so spectacular especially in the sunset time. There are lot of restaurants under the bridge, but I love the grilled fish sandwich right by the beginning of the bridge.

“Just a bridge but a very important bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Not much to say about bridges: they get you from point A to point B and back again. This one joins two continents and two halves of a city on two continents. I have not been on it but have been beneath it on a cruise ship and most recently on a dinner cruise. While it is not the prettiest bridge or the greatest engineering marvel, you have to appreciate its meaning and its mere existence.

“Beautiful place on earth, The Bosphorus Bridge, Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

As a Traveller one should visit this place without fail.

The Bosphorus Bridge connects the Asia with Europe and there is no word on earth to describe the beauty of this bridge.

Lot of Indian Veg Restaurants available in Istanbul.

For Non-Veg lot of sea food is famous and fresh fish is caught and cook in front of you.

My personal opinion is that at least you should have minimum of 4 days to visit Istanbul alone to do some Justice.

Wonderful place on earth and I will visit again this place.

“Hop On Hop Off - Topless Bus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the awesomeness of the Bosphorous bridge. Twice over going and coming we had our things knocked off us, windy, icy chilly windy in summer but so soothing almost therapeutic. Fabulous dont miss it, its a must
