Circuit in Turcia 6. Croaziera pe Bosfor / Roundtrip in Turkey 6. Cruise on Bosphorus

We did our Bosphor cruise late in the afternoon. The guide arranged to hire a whole small ship for our group. This is a very pleasant and rewarding cruise. Not only that you see different sections of the city, palaces and villas, on both Europeans and Asiatic sides, but also people walking near the sea, sitting on the benches or simply waiting for a boat to cross the water. A cruise cannot be described too well, but the photos could give you an idea.


Croaziera noastra pe Bosfor a avut loc dupa-amiaza tarziu, asa ca, la inapoiere am vazut aprinzandu-se luminile. Ghida noastra a inchiriat un vaporas doar pentru grupul nostru. Croaziera aceasta merita facuta daca esti la istanbul! De partea europeana dar si cea asiatica vezi palate si vile, oameni plimbandu-se, stand pe banci pe malul marii sau pur si simplu asteptand un vaporas pentru traversare. O croaziera nu poate fi povestita dar fotografiile va pot da o idee despre ea.

Frumos... Nici in Europa, nici in Asia. Sau poate putin in amandoua.

Thank you, dear rama, for your appreciation! It will be not a trip, just a few hours stop. I have to wait 11 hours on the airport, so I decided yo walk a little in the city:)
