The Rough Guide to Istanbul is the perfect introduction to a vibrant mega-city, fast-becoming as popular for its nightlife and arts scene as it is for its unique historical heritage. All the major Byzantine and Ottoman sites, plus a myriad of lesser-known gems, are easily tracked down using clear, comprehensive maps. Whether you wish to watch the faithful at prayer in the iconic Blue Mosque, admire the glittering- gold mosaics in the Church of the Holy Wisdom, relax in an historic Turkish bath, cruise up the continent-dividing Bosphorus or dance the night away in an über-cool club, you can find out where and how in The Rough Guide to Istanbul. Evocative photographs of the city's highlights complement the text and two full-colour sections introduce the fascinating world of Ottoman Turkish architecture and the culinary delights of the Turkish kitchen. There are up-to-date descriptions of the city's best bars, cafes, clubs, hotels, restaurants and shops for all budgets, and a detailed section on 'out of town' trips including the legendary city of Troy and the former-Ottoman capitals of Bursa and Edirne.
