The Bosporus Strait, which divides Istanbul in two, is also known as the Strait of Istanbul. It connects the Black Sea in the north to the Marmara and Mediterranean Sea in the south, splitting Turkey into a European side and an Asian side. Both sides are famous historical districts in Istanbul.
We have been to Istanbul last May. Bosphorus cruise is must see. You can enjoy city sightseeing for 1 hour with very affordable price.
The Bosphorus Strait can take a cruise around, there is a car to pick up the hotel, the ship provides free biscuits and tea, the ship will be in English, Russian (there are many Turkish Russian tourists), Turkish broadcast on both sides of the attractions introduction, in the downstairs cabin can be heard clearly, other places can not hear clearly. After the cruise ship docked on the Asian side, all tourists disembarked, gathered around and then boarded the ship back to the European side. The return journey of the ship was very fast, about 15m away, and then the car was returned to the hotel.
