Paladin, just now I visited the Geography & Travel section of this forum for the first time, and saw watched the very interesting video about the Turkey that you posted. Thank you!
Istanbul in my opinion is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities of this world. Fifteen to twenty million people lives in the city and it's vicinity (25 % of Turkish population)
In the image I'm posting you could see two Bosphorus bridges that connect European and Asian continents. Third bridge and a tunnel are under construction. Construction of tunnel got delayed up to 4 years due to very valuable archeological findings.
In addition to these bridges ferry boats carry people and vehicles between the two continents.
