Vote to make this city a priority


The largest and most populous city in Turkey (though not the capital), Istanbul is brimming with history, culture, and traditions. Gorgeous tiled mosques spot the hills that line the Bosphorus strait, and all contribute to the melodious Adhan, the call to prayer that rings out from the minarets five times a day. Whether you’re here to explore the many palaces, mosques, towers, and bazaars, or you want to eat your weight in Turkish delight and doner kebab, Istanbul is a thriving and bustling city with endless facets to be explored.
