Indeed, in the days of the Roman Empire, Istanbul (or Constantinople, as was its previous moniker) was the capitol of the civilized world. It stood as the center of the longest standing empire mankind has ever seen, and to this day, maintains the charm and appeal that has always graced its personality.
