The Rough Guide to Istanbul is the perfect introduction to a vibrant mega-city, fast-becoming as popular for its nightlife and arts scene as it is for its unique historical heritage. All the major Byzantine and Ottoman sites, plus a myriad lesser-known gems, are easily tracked down using clear, comprehensive maps. Whether you wish to watch the faithful at prayer in the iconic Blue Mosque, admire the glittering gold mosaics in the Church of the Holy Wisdom, relax in an historic Turkish bath, cruise up the continent-dividing Bosphorus or dance the night away in an über-cool club, you can find out where and how in The Rough Guide to Istanbul. Evocative photographs of the city's highlights complement the text and two full-colour sections introduce the fascinating world of Ottoman Turkish architecture and the culinary delights of the Turkish kitchen.
