Beautiful Istanbul scenery from Bosphorus Cruise @ Istanbul, Turkey

The Bosphorus connects the Black sea to the Marmara sea. The length is around 30 kilometres. By taking the Bosphorus cruise, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of Istanbul on both sides of Asian and European side. On European side, you can have the view of beautiful waterside residences. The Bosphorus is the unique strategic waterway which connects the two continents Europe and Asia, so it is a bridge between European and Asian Sides that makes Istanbul unique.
