Enigmatic Istanbul is an endless story. It’s the story of Istanbul’s many names, the story of settling the city, ‘Opposite the blind’. Although these two stories might be enough for some, for others they are just the beginning. Istanbul is rich in many things. One cannot miss the history Istanbul offers. Then, there is the culture. Turkish cuisine. Definitely, spiritual Istanbul. A day is not enough to see the city but you need a day, even a few hours, to feel addicted to it. Istanbul daily tours

Mevlana, the whirling dervishes and Istanbul private tours Mevlevi

‘Out beyond ideas
of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.’

Jelaluddin Rumi, 13th century

Byzantium, Constantinople, Stamboul are all different names of the giant that everyone today knows as Istanbul. Many things have been written about that cosmopolitan city. Many stories have been told and many more will be in the future since the city is an endless source of information.

When thinking about Istanbul, it always seems to conjure up many faces in my head. It looks like one of those dragons from the fairy-tales that have many heads. Each one of them living its own life and still they are in perfect harmony and peace. Istanbul is the Romans, the Ottomans and the modern Turks of today. Mevlana had never been to Istanbul but he is part of the city as well, just like he is part of whole Turkey. Istanbul private tours Mevlevi
