In its prime position straddling two continents, Istanbul is one of the most unique cities on earth. Centuries ago, it was the final stop on the legendary Silk Road between Europe and Asia. Today, you can see both continents in a different way: from the sea.
Get on a video call with a local Istanbul host as they board a ferry from Eminönü to Kadıköy – or Europe to Asia! The ferry will cruise across the Bosphorus Strait, a stretch of water dividing two halves of Istanbul (and two continents). Get a new perspective on the cityscape and learn a little more about its history as you sail along the strait away from European shores.
From a unique angle, you’ll get unmatched views of the historic buildings of Old Istanbul, including Topkapı Palace and the Blue Mosque, and rock over the gentle waves created by cargo ships as you reach the Asian side of Istanbul.
