Dance With Istanbul


In 1453, the city of Constantinople (the prior name of Istanbul) fell to the Ottoman Turks, causing what was arguably still the world's most important city to fall under Muslim control.  Key to the successful siege was Rumeli Fortress, constructed on the western side of the Bosphorus, just north of the core city.  In this drone video by iskenderfilm, you'll be treated to aerial views of the famous fortification, as well as of the nearby Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge.  The latter is the middle of the three Bosphorus bridges.
