Istanbul (Turkish: İstanbul), historically known as Byzantium and Constantinople[1] (see the names of Istanbul for further information) is the largest city of Turkey. According to the address-based birth recording system of the Turkish Statistical Institute, the metropolitan municipality (province) of the city had a population of 13.26 million as of 2010,[2] which is 17.98% of Turkey's population and the 3rd largest in Europe(including its Asian half) after London and Moscow. The last census data from 2000 puts its population at 8.8 million.[3] Istanbul is a megacity, as well as the cultural, economic, and financial centre of Turkey. It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbour known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) sides of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents. Istanbul is a designated alpha world city. Source Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Istanbul Will open in a new tab or window
