Crossing the Golden Horn

This is of the central points of history, the bridge that connects Asia and Europe. For almost two thousand years, in times of peaceful trade and war, a bridge has spanned the Golden Horn, the narrowest point of the Bosporus River. More than just history, this bridge also features importantly in Turkish art, literature and romance. When you visit Istanbul, take the time to actually walk across the bridge, stop in mid-span to enjoy the views (and take some photographs). It's particularly beautiful at night, too.
