The Bosphorus Strait (İstanbul Boğazı) is a true one-off in the world in dividing a city into two continents, Europe and Asia. It is a unique and interesting connection between East and West – attracting in some inexplicable way like a magnet. The Bosphorus is also an important and busy traffic route from the world via the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea. On the other hand, it is absolutely vital for commuter traffic. Namely, up to 1.8 million Istanbulites travel from one continent to the other every day, and this largely happens specifically on the Bosphorus ferries. What a delightful commute!
But we are now going on a two-hour cruise just to enjoy the beauty and history of the Bosphorus and Istanbul. Probably Istanbul will also surprise you once again; after this cruise, you will know that Istanbul is, contrary to common misconception, a very green city.
Welcome to the sunny waves of the Bosphorus
Naturally, you can choose from a wide variety of cruises in Istanbul or, for example, order a cruise tailored just for you and your friends. Evening cruises are usually dinner cruises (in Turkey, dinner is usually served late in the evening), but please be careful when selecting your cruise – do you want to go for a riotous party cruise or for calmer waves?
