Istanbul on suurkaupunki ja sen hahmottaa ehkä parhaiten mereltä käsin.

The size of Istanbul is clear from the sea.

Waiting for the tour to start
The harbor is always busy

New Istanbul
Look at the size of it. And the smog. 
Harbor cities all have their unique atmosphere
Sunset, cranes and city scape, what more can you ask?
If you want a palace, make it a big one
The size of the bridges are only eminent from close up
