Istanbul is a mythical city, where you can see the remains of many ancient civilizations and their culture in harmony with Turkish culture. The old contradicts the new, the traditional versus the modern is a conflict a visitor often observes. The city is full of contrasts, and colorful views.
The triangular peninsula of Old Istanbul contains most of the oldest sites in Istanbul. Its boundaries of water on two sides and the ancient walls on the other are identical to those of the ancient city first laid out nearly 1,700 years ago.
Although a couple of broad modern highways exist now, most of Old Istanbul's narrow streets twist and turn over the city's seven hills as they have done for centuries.
New Town is the area on the northern shore of the Golden Horn. The architecture reflects the city's steady expansion north over the last century. Most of the buildings in Beyoglu, the neighborhood closest to the Golden Horn, date from the late 19th and early 20th century.
