The stunning, expansive city of Istanbul was also known historically as Byzantium and Constantinople, and today lies in the Marmara region of northwestern Turkey, sprawling along both sides of the Bosphorus Strait. This makes it the only city in the world to occupy two continents, with the eastern portion considered to be part of Asia, while the western portion lies in Europe, and it is also one of the largest cities in the world and has been inhabited since the 7th millennium BCE.

 

The rich cultural heritage of Istanbul, along with its temperate climate and deep natural harbor, which is located in a prehistoric estuary known as the Golden Horn, have worked to make it a popular destination for modern seafaring travelers. In addition, the surrounding area offers many opportunities for adventuresome maritime travelers to explore, including the ancient Sea of Marmara, which connects the Black Sea to the Aegean Sea, and the nearby Princes’ Islands.
