Every person who lives or lived in this magnificent city has a memory about İstanbul to tell to next generations. And I guess this person will have more than one memory to tell if he/she was born and grew up in İstanbul.
We all know that İstanbul is a magical city where old and new, traditional and modern, the rich and poor, in short, many opposites come together and blend. It is a charming city which you complain about when you are living in it, miss all the time when you are away from it and fall in love with again whenever you come back. There is different texture in each quarter and diffrent energy in each neighbourhood of İstanbul.
