HISTORY Of ISTANBUL

History of İstanbul

What is now called Asian side of Istanbul was probably inhabited by people as early as 3000 BC.
Eventually, in the 7th century, Greek colonists led by King Byzas established the colony of Byzantium, the Greek name for a city on the Bosphorus. Byzas chose the spot after consulting an oracle of Delphi who told him to settle across from the "land of the blind ones." Indeed, Byzas concluded, earlier settlers must have been deprived of their sight to have overlooked this superb location at the mouth of the Bosphorus strait. This proved an auspicious decision by Byzas, as history has shown Istanbul's location importance far beyond what these earty Greek settlers might possibly have conceived. Byzas gave his ame to the city:Byzantium.
In the early 100's BC, Istanbul became part of the Roman Empire and in 306 AD, Emperor Constantine the Great made Byzantium capital of the entire Roman Empire.From that point on, the city was known as Constantinople.
The mid 400's AD was a time of enormous upheaval in the empire. Barbarians conquered the western Roman Empire while the Eastern, also called the Byzantine Empire, kept Constantinople as its capital. In 532 during the reign of Justinian I, antigovernment riots destroyed the city. It was rebuilt, and outstanding structres such as Hagia Sophia stand as monuments to the heights Byzantine culture reached.
The attribute that made the city so desirable; its incomparable location for trade and transport between three continents, was also its nemesis. For the next several hundred years Persians, Arabs, Nomadic people, and members of the Fourth (who for a time governed the city) attacked Constantinople. Finally, weakened by almost constant battles, the Ottoman Turks lead by Sultan Mehmet II conquered Constantinople in 1453. Renamed it Istanbul, it became the third and last capital of the Ottoman Empire. It was the nerve center for military campaigns that were to enlarge the Ottoman Empire dramatically. By the mis 1500's, Istanbul, with a population of almost half a million, was a major cultural, political, and commercial center. Rule continued until it was defeated in WWI and Istanbul was accupied by the allies.
When the Republic of Turkey was born in 1923 after the War of Independence, Kemal Ataturk chanced the capital city to Ankara. But Istanbul has continued to expand dramatically; today its population is approximately 13 million and increases at an astimated 700,000 immigrants per year. Industry has expanded an as tourism has grown too. It continues to be a city that creates its own history at the intersection where both Continents meet.
There are many interesting museums, castles, palaces, mosques, churches and historic hammams. Some of the interesting districts of the city are: Haydarpasa, Uskudar, Eyup, Galata, Perapalas, Ortakoy, Bosphorus, Taksım, Emınonu and Sultanahmet. Princess Islands are popular summer resort for local people.
