Istanbul - at the crossroads of Europe and the Middle East


Only a few days in Budapest was not enough. I long to go back. Would like to do a trip solely in Eastern Europe.

Bosphorus Bridge Istanbul. It is 1,510 m (4,954 ft) long with a deck width of 39 m (128 ft). The distance between the towers (main span) is 1,074 m (3,524 ft) and their height over road level is 105 m (344 ft). Went under in 1989; when Russia was still cranky.
