Friendly cats and dogs roamed about the city just like the citizens itself. In every inch of its fibre there's mosques. Literally every 10 steps you take. Though it sadden me that less than a quarter of their moslems only practice. The magnificent blue mosque from the Ottoman empire still standing perfectly. The controversial church/mosque Hagia sophia is beautiful.
I'll keep the story short and leave the whole story to those that have Istanbul in their list. One thing for sure, Istanbul is worth it.
A cliche but Istanbul sure is one of my most favourite city I've visited. A city must be visited by an adventure seeker, food lover and most importantly, a person who truly appreciate a good old history.
I'll shout it out loud here - I love Istanbul!
