SINCE 1971


Istanbul has been home to 3 huge empires throughout its history and that's why it has so rich cultural and historical diversity and around the city. Today, when there is new metro or some other underground digging work starts, it always gets delayed several years because everywhere they dig, they find ancient ruins or artifacts that are at least a few thousand years old.
One of the latest archeological discoveries was again also during Istanbul Metro construction and archeologists found shipwrecks and many other items dating back 7000years! Please keep in mind that the pyramids are around 4000years old! Back in ancient times, there were 3 - 4 extremely important cities around the Mediterranean, these were, Istanbul (Constantinople back then), Cairo - Egypt, Jerusalem, and Athens.
