ISTANBUL - EMİNÖNÜ
AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Eminönü is the oldest part of Istanbul, Turkey, which had the distinction (under its various names) as being the world's largest city for much of the 1st and 2nd millennia AD. Now part of the Fatih District on the southern side of the Golden Horn, where the inlet connects with the Strait of Bosphorus, Eminönü roughly corresponds to the site of the ancient city of Byzantium. In this drone video by former Drone Video of the Week Finalist ucarakkesfet, you'll get an aerial tour of this historic area.
Eminönü is a former district of Istanbul inTurkey, now a neighbourhood of Fatih district. This is the heart of the walled city of Constantine, the focus of a history of incredible richness. Eminönü covers roughly the area on which the ancient Byzantium was built. The Galata Bridge crosses the Golden Horn into Eminönü and the mouth of the Bosphorus opens into the Marmara Sea. And up on the hill stands Topkapı Palace, the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Camii) and Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya). Thus Eminönü is the main tourist destination in Istanbul. It was a part of the Fatih district until 1928, which covered the whole peninsular area (the old Stamboul) within the Roman city walls - that area which was formerly the Byzantine capitalConstantinople. Since the resident population of Eminönü is low today, it rejoined the Fatih district in 2009. .
