Your Destination

With a 1,000 year history as the last remaining outpost of the Roman Empire, then called ‘Constantinople’, and a dramatic expansion under Ottoman rule from the 1500s until the city’s defeat in WW1, Istanbul has a fascinating heritage that draws travellers like bees to honey.

Situated on the narrow Bosphorus strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, Istanbul has attracted many a marauding army in its time and has been a bridge between Asia and Europe both physically and culturally for centuries. As the final stage on the legendary Silk Route, the cultural diversity of Istanbul is tangible to this day.

Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is Istanbul’s Old City and marvel over some of its most incredible structures, including the Blue Mosque, or Sultan Ahmed Mosque, named because of the blue tiles that dominate the interior walls. Discover the Topkapi Palace, the largest and oldest palace in the world and see where wicked sultans, beautiful concubines, ambitious courtiers and scheming eunuchs lived and worked between the 15th and 19th centuries. Or head to the bustling Istiklal Street and choose from over 1.4km of shops, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, bookstores and chocolate shops, amongst others, to entertain you.

Watch the captivating layers of history unfold before you in the vibrant city of Istanbul and find yourself enamoured with its vivid culture.
Green nature, a river with an unprecedented beauty, a blue sea, fresh air, delicious fish…This is Agva, the pearl of the Black sea.

Probably the most attractive parts of this pleasant town, which was established on the delta between the rivers of Goksu and Yesilçay and which stems from the Cal Tepe of Izmit, are the green coastlines of these rivers.

Agva has a 3 kilometre long seaside on the coast of the Black sea. It is a region where the natural beach, the environment - which is a miracle of nature itself, undiscovered bays, small isles and forests are intermingled with natural surroundingss giving very high levels of oxygen. The Kilim Bay, Gelin Kayası (Bride Rock) and Saklı Gol (Hidden Lake) are places which must be visited. The reason for it being called the Gelin Kayasi (Bride Rock) is due to its white colour and that it resembles a bride with a veil.
