İstanbul (Κωνσταντινούπολη, Constantinople / Byzantium / Ստամբուլը / Kushta) is the only city in the world located in two continents, Europa and Asia. It is the main city of Turkey, on both sides of the Bosphorus strait (İstanbul Boğazı), between the Black Sea (Karadeniz) and the Mediterranean (Akdeniz, "White Sea in Turkish).
The photo was taken in skdar, in the Asian side of İstanbul, after a snowy February night. This is a rather normal street scene, but İstanbul is a most fascinating city, a real crossroads of History and Cultures.
1994, scanned from paper photo.
