Bosphorus Cruise


 This Mini- Cruise is a great way of seeing Istanbul from the water. What I loved is that on one side is Europe and the other Asia. From the boat, you see all the palaces and buildings which line the Bosphorus and also the Fortress of Europe built in 1452 and pass under the Bosphorus bridge.




During the cruise, sea gulls travel all the way with you but the most magical moment was when we could see a couple of dolphins swimming alongside the boat on our way back.





 As you sail, you get to see all the mosques, palaces, houses, buildings, forts, go under a few bridges, see lots of other boats cruising around and just overall so relaxing.




View of Dolmabahce Palace






Hagia Sophia

View of Sultan Ahmet Mosque or best known as Blue Mosque


The European Fortress





Ortakoy Mosque



Galata Tower


View of both Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. You could see them in my post http://www.travelera.es/2015/05/istanbul-hagia-sophia-and-blue-mosque.html


 These cruises get really busy and you need to make sure you get the best position so you need to get early and get the left side of the boat, where you will be able to see everything and make the best pictures otherwise if there are people in front of you, you will not get as nice views. I was glad I had a jacket with me as on the top decking the views were fantastic but it was extremely windy.



We took the boat near the Blue Mosque, so we enjoyed a second day seeing Sultan Ahmed area, we also took the pictures for  "Desafio ACTAYS" from the post: http://www.travelera.es/2015/05/desafio-actays-conquista-de-estambul.html




 I was wearing River Island dress, Knockaround sunglasses (I have them in all the colours) and sandals from Tescos


 I hope you liked this post and I would love to read your comments
 Have you been in Istanbul? Did you visit more cities in Turkey?
