Istanbul is a complicated metropolitan city which reflects the mysticism of Asia with its palaces and churches, and at the same time lives the modernism of Europe through its modern commercial and conference centres, with their contemporary business dynamics. The character of the city, from its origins in 3,000 BC until today, lies in the silhouettes of the many churches, mosques, palaces, bazaars and Turkish baths… etc. Istanbul has always been a very important city in each historical era. In all times, under Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman rule, Istanbul has either been the capital or one of the biggest cities of the empire. Today, with a population of more than 10 million, Istanbul has come to be the centre of Turkey in all fields like commerce, industry, tourism, art, history, and entertainment. It acts as a gateway to Europe for many Asian countries, and the gateway to Asia for many European countries.

The glory days of global empires are reflected in the silhouettes of the architectural wealth of Istanbul shining on the two banks of the Bosphorus where the continents meet.: Sultanahmet Mosque, Santa Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, Pier Loti Café, Beylerbeyi Palace, Dolmabahce Palace, Kiz Kulesi, Ciragan Palace, Beyoglu, Misir Carsisi, and countless numbers more…

17 kms from the Sabiha Gokcen airport in the Asian part of Istanbul, you come to Tuzla, a traditional spa location famous for its drinking cures.

Since then, the mineral waters of Tuzla have been used to resolve disorders of the digestion system, support the metabolism, rehabilitate and treat rheumatic, orthopaedic and neurological disorders.
