did u sea Istanbul?

This is a series that continues to evolve, reflecting the life of Istanbul filled with sometimes unexpected and sometimes ordinary moments on the sea and its shores.

Istanbul is a big multicultural, astonishing old city that has embraced many civilizations for thousands of years. The coastline, piers and bridges are full of life in Istanbul, which connects two continents.

The sea is indispensable for city life, millions of people breathe the wind and smell the salt every day. Coasts, like the sea, are in a constant flow. There are many unnoticed moments in this flow.

Life in the coastline is like the waves of the sea, sometimes the crowds flow in the calm of the sea, and sometimes loneliness is shared among the crowds.

The shores, which thousands of people visit every day, always offer fun surprises to their visitors and residents. Like a carnival, it is always moving, lively, mystical and never predictable.
