Der zweite Tag begann sehr verregnet und ziemlich früh. Schließlich wollte ich ein Geschäft finden, dass mein Kameraobjektiv reparieren konnte.
Also packte ich meinen Rucksack und zug los Richtung Eminönü. In der Gegend rund um die Tram Station "Sirkeci" ist der "Markt" für Fotogeschäfte usw. Nachdem ich in etwa 2 dutzend Geschäften war, …
Hier steh' ich also am Atatürk Flughafen in Istanbul. Das erste Mal in der Türkei! In einer Stadt und einem Land das vor Historie geradezu aus allen Nähten platzt!
Nur hier am Flughafen ist davon nix zu spüren. Es ist 13:30 Uhr als das Flugzeug landet, gegen 14:30 Uhr steh' ich immer noch in der Warteschlange vor der Einreisebehörde. Zum Teil …
... to queue again and wait for an English speaking tour before we could enter the palace. What opulence inside, it is huge with gold everywhere. The Palace has not been lived in since the 1930's and a lot of the rooms are closed as it is gradually being restored to its former glory. The state rooms are superb and only the men were allowed in these. There was a small viewing gallery high ...
... stores with all their cool old swag. This done we wound our way through a maze of shops, trusting Oz and the downward slope to get us to the Bosporus, where we had a boat ride scheduled. This ride might have been one of the things I enjoyed most on the trip.

... carpet that he was holding had significant "religious" markings on it and that I should consider it. It was room size. I politely shook my head no and stood to get up and leave. They both walked me to the door and said that they would show me some places that I might be interested in. They did show me the drugstore, the travel shop and Bar-B-Q place to eat. I do believe that they do have connections with all the shops and vendors and they get a ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAquarium Hotel Istanbul
This family owned hotel is situated in a side street in Sultanahmet near the "Gülhane" Tram Station and in walking distance to Ayasofia, the blue mosque and Topkapi Palace.
The staff was really friendly, and "Babba" speaks fluently German.
The room was small but tiedy with a private bath. Unfortunatly one could hear all the noise from downstairs through the staircase - but considering the fact I always was tired, when beeing in my room it didn't keep me from sleeping well at all.
The turkish breakfast served on top of the building was very basic but good and adequate.
There is an internet cafe (in the basement of a souvenir shop) up the street from the Hotel which I thought was too expensive.
