Between tearooms and minarets.
Istanbul skips lightly between modernity and tradition – galleries of contemporary art are just a few metres from historic teahouses, and as many ornamented minarets as high-rise apartment blocks characterise the skyline. The unbelievable size of Istanbul amazes the visitor - Istanbul is the world’s fourth largest city, with 15 million inhabitants.
The special charm of the city only becomes really apparent with a closer look, when one discovers the network of alleyways and the picturesque roof terraces. Naturally this is best done with a native of Istanbul, so we meet up with the artist and illustrator Ceyhun Güney to gain a better insight into this city on two continents.
