From the 15th century onwards, Istanbul was the capital of the Ottoman Empire. The Sultan, who ruled the country, was simultaneously a caliph, the spiritual leader of all Muslims. As a result, there are more mosques in Istanbul than in any other Turkish city. The number reaches up to 3113 mosques in total. The best known and popular among travellers are Blue, Suleymaniye, Ortaköy and Aya Sofia. The Sultans extended their power throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. They were the richest men of their time. Therefore, Istanbul is famous for beautiful palaces: Topkapi, Dolmabahce, Yildiz, Beylerbay and others. Istanbul stands at the crossroads of trade routes. It is known for its oriental bazaars.

Under the Bosphorus there is the second deepest tunnel in the world called Marmaray. During daytime and in the evenings walking along the bay is popular among tourists of different countries
