Las orillas del Bósforo al atardecer se llenan de una delicada luz rosada y después rojiza, que ilumina a la que fue capital del Imperio Romano de Oriente, de Bizancio y del Imperio Otomano; alumbrando con la misma luz de siglos anteriores, mostrando el esplendor de un pasado glorioso y un presente de modernidad.
Estambul es la única ciudad del mundo que se asienta sobre dos continentes: Europa y Asia. En ella convergen las civilizaciones de Oriente y de Occidente. Es esta enorme riqueza y diversidad cultural lo que más fascina. Y es que, las grandes mezquitas, museos, bazares, iglesias, palacios y las espectaculares vistas de la belleza natural del entorno parecen inagotables.
Hoy en día, Estambul es el centro económico de la República de Turquía. Un continuo desfile de petroleros y barcos mercantes cruza a diario las aguas del Bósforo. La población continúa creciendo, la ciudad se hace más grande. La historia de sus barrios, templos, calles, palacios y mezquitas, alimenta la vida de una ciudad y de una gente que se abre al futuro.
La Torre Gálata, al fondo (Galata Kulesi) es una de las más antiguas del mundo. Para disfrutar de una noche super especial, en la Torre Gálata se celebran cenas con espectáculo, barra libre y baile. El precio es de aproximadamente 65 euros.

The banks of the Bosphorus at sunset are filled with a delicate pink and then red light that illuminates it was capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, Byzantium and the Ottoman Empire, shining the same light of previous centuries, showing the splendor of a glorious past and a present of modernity.
Istanbul is the only city in the world that sits on two continents: Europe and Asia. In it converge the civilizations of East and West. It is this enormous wealth and cultural diversity that most fascinates. And, the great mosques, museums, bazaars, churches, palaces and spectacular views of the surrounding natural beauty seem inexhaustible.
Today, Istanbul is the economic center of the Republic of Turkey. A continuous parade of oil tankers and merchant boats crosses to newspaper waters of the Bosphorus. The population continues to grow, the city gets bigger. The history of their neighborhoods, churches, streets, palaces and mosques, nourishes the life of a city and a people who are open to the future.
The Galata Tower in the background (Galata Kulesi) is one of the oldest in the world. To enjoy a super special night at the Galata Tower Dinner shows are held, open bar and dancing. The price is about 65 euros.
