mb! Magazine took a tour to the intoxicating rush of colours, sounds and smells of the Turkish metropolis.

With the uncanny grace of a dancer, Istanbul flits between tradition and today – here, contemporary art galleries rub shoulders with historic tea rooms and both towering high-rises and elaborately embellished minarets make up the city’s jagged skyline. The sheer size of the place takes our breath away – a populace of 15 million makes Istanbul the world’s fourth largest city.

Yet it takes a second, longer glance to discover Istanbul’s genuine charm – a charm born between winding alleys and picturesque roof terraces. To find the top spots, mb! teamed up with a local: Artist and illustrator Ceyhun Güney promises special glimpses of a city caught between two continents.
