About IstanbulIstanbul is the capital of the Turkish economy and 2010’s European capital of culture. It plays host to the headquarters of manufacturing, leasing and computing companies from all over the world, as well as to the Turkish stock exchange, gold stocks and private and commercial insurance and banking services.
Istanbul has many interesting historic buidlings such as mosques, churches, palaces, synagogues and castles that reflect its diverse ethnic and cultural mix. The architecture within the city blends influences from ancient Greece and Egypt as well as Byzantine, Genoese, Ottoman and modern Turkish sources.
Businessmen and women from all over the world mix with the young local professionals who live and work in the area, shopping in superb quality malls featuring famous name brands and dining at a wealth of restaurants, many with a truly international flavour.
Some 15 million people live and work in the city and as you would expect with an area of such a dense population, traffic on the roads can get very busy, particularly in the mornings and early evenings. Traffic regulations are set to govern which side of the road you should drive on and when you should stop, but very little else.
For this reason in Istanbul, everyone drives with one hand on the wheel and one on the horn, trusting in Allah to get them to their final destination safely. The local authorities are taking positive steps to remedy the situation through the introduction of a Monorail system and a subway extension programme and these should be up and running by 2012.
Until then, visitors and émigrés will need to content themselves with a system of buses, trams, trains, taxis, ferries, ships, the metro system, the dolmus (transit vans that operate in a similar way to a large tuk-tuk) and of course, the pavements. The latter quite often being the quickest way to get from points A to B, assuming they’re not too far apart.
