I've traveled to Istanbul for 4 days and it was great. It was my second time in this beautiful and endless city, so I decided to skip the touristic activities and get lost on the small streets. I got a good look at the weekend activities of the only city located on two continents. Everything is cheerful, but at the same time sober.
Start the weekend with a prayer at the Galata Tower.
And continue with a fresh juice.
Take a walk through the Grand Bazaar and escape the rain and cold wind from outside.
Take a boat trip to the Asian part of the city and eat some good fish. You can visit the Maiden's tower located on the small island in the photo.
Sunday is market day in the Kurdish neighborhood. Everything is super cheap and everybody is very friendly.
