Winter is an excellent season to visit Istanbul since there are hardly any visitors, allowing you to appreciate all of the city's landmarks and museums in solitude. In the winter, Istanbul takes on a new face, one that is both authentic and mysterious. It gives a lot of ideas for a date. In general, it snows around once a week throughout the winter, which is great for photographers!
The Grand Bazaar is one of the world's oldest markets, which gives it historical value. The Bazaar was constructed under the Ottoman Empire following the Ottoman Sultan's conquest of Constantinople. The narrow passageways of the Bazaar will transport you back to the medieval era. Beautiful creative carpets, jewelry, antiques, clothing, and various other items are offered at low prices in the Bazaar.
Istanbul Modern is a museum that allows us to enjoy the work of modern Turkish artists by displaying fantastic art pieces. The paintings and sculptures are displayed in huge galleries, exhibition rooms, and a library.
The Istanbul Aquarium, which opened in 2011, is one of the world's largest, covering over 6000 square meters. There are about 10,000 water animals, including enormous rays, tiger sharks, and various others. It is an interactive museum that makes use of cutting-edge technology. Following a geographical route (through an 80-meter water pipe), you will traverse 16 distinct worlds from the Black Sea to the Pacific.
The Bosphorus is a natural strait and a canal that flows through Istanbul, and the city has grown on both sides of the waterway. Every day, several supper cruises operate in the Bosphorus Strait. Because most of Istanbul's sights can be seen from both sides of the Bosphorus Strait, this dinner cruise is an excellent opportunity to spend a romantic evening touring the city.
