Did you know that Istanbul is located both in Europe and Asia!

This makes Istanbul unique as it is the only transcontinental city in the world.

Istanbul is not the capital city of Türkiye.

In fact, the capital city is Ankara who’s main airport is LTAC (Ankara Esenboga Airport), located almost 500km south of Istanbul.
