Five reasons to visit Istanbul next spring
1. Follow the footsteps of James Bond
Agent 007 is exploring Istanbul in the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall. The first action scene takes place in Grand Bazaar. World’s largest indoor bazaar Grand Bazaar was built in 1461 and there are more than 4 000 shops. Open every day 8.30–19.00. (Beyazıt-Eminönü.)
It’s the third time that James Bond movie is partly filmed in Istanbul – the city of two continents: Asia and Europe. The name of the first Istanbul based movie was From Russia with love and the second one was The world is not enough.
