    II.II.II.II. THE CITY OFTHE CITY OFTHE CITY OFTHE CITY OF ISTANBULISTANBULISTANBULISTANBUL

    A. KEY INFORMATIONS

    The God and human, the nature and the art are together in there, they have created such a perfect place

    that is valuable to see. Alphone de Lamartines famous poetic line reveals his love for Istanbul, describingthe embracing of two continents, with one arm reaching out to Asia and the other to Europe.

    Istanbul (historically also known as Byzantium and Constantinople) is the largest city in Turkey and the fifthlargest city in the world with a population of 13.8 million people. It is also a mega city as well as being thecultural and financial centre of Turkey. In its long history, Istanbul has served as the capital city of the RomanEmpire (330-395 AD), the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395-1204 and 1261-1453), the Latin Empire (1204-1261) and the Ottoman Empire (1453-1922).

    The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985 and chosen as jointEuropean Capital of Culture for 2010. It is the only city in the world to straddle two continents and the only one

    to have been a capital during two consecutive empires Christian and Islamic.

    Istanbuls variety is one of its greatest attractions. The ancient mosques, palaces, museums and bazaarsreflect its diverse history. The thriving shopping area of Taksim buzzes with life and entertainment. The 19thcentury iek Pasaj (which translates literally as Flower Passage) on stiklal Avenue, consisting of manyhistoric meyhanes, pubs and restaurants, was built back in 1876. The famous Nevizde Street, with rows ofhistoric meyhanes next to each other, is also in this area. Other historic pubs are to be found in the areasaround Tnel Pasaj and the nearby Asmalmescit Soka. Some historic neighborhoods around stiklalAvenue have recently been recreated, with varying degrees of success. For example, Cezayir Soka,situated near Galatasaray High School, became unofficially known as La Rue Franaise and has rows offrancophone pubs, cafs and restaurants playing live music.

    Istanbul is also famous for its historic seafood restaurants. The most popular seafood restaurants are

    generally found along the shores of the Bosphorus and by the Marmara Sea shore towards the south of thecity. The largest of the Princes Islands in the Sea of Marmara (namely Bykada, Heybeliada, Burgazada andKnalada) and Anadolu Kava near the northern entrance of the Bosphorus towards the Black Sea alsohave many historic seafood restaurants. On top of all these meyhanes, pubs and restaurants, Istanbul hasone of the most famous cuisines in the world with its traditional Ottoman features. The food served at hotelsand restaurants is exceptionally unique and memorable for almost everyone who visits the city. Rak , SishKebap and Turkish Delight are the biggest trademarks of Turkish foods with their worldwide reputations andare strongly recommended for visitors.

    B. MUST SEE

    Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya) Museum

    For nearly a thousand years, Ayasofya was the largest enclosed space in theworld, and still seen as one of the worlds most important structures. It is one ofTurkeys most popular attractions, drawn by the sheer spectacle of its size,architecture, mosaics and art.

    It used to be a church for 916 years, then a mosque for 481 years, and has been amuseum since 1935. Thought to have been constructed by Emperor KonstantinosI (324-337) it was burned down during a revolt. Rebuilt by Emperor Theodosium II, it was opened for worshipin 415 and once again was burned to the ground, during the Nika revolts of 532.

    Emperor Iustanianus (527-565) wanted to build something even bigger than the first two versions of thestructure. He appointed architects Isidoros from Miletos and Anthemios from Tralles to build the Aya Sofyawhich still stands. Columns, heads, marble and coloured stones were imported to Istanbul from ancient citiesin Anatolia for the purpose.

    The construction began on 23rd December 532 and was completed exactly five years later. The main, centralsection measured 100m by 70m, covered with a 55m high dome which was a mammoth 30m in diameter appearing to be a great feat of design. The mosaics are of great importance and the oldest ones aredominated by geometric and plant motifs decorated with gold.

    Sultanahmet Mosque (called the Blue Mosque)

    Sultan Ahmet I built this mosque in the 17th century (1609-1616) in the squarecarrying his name. The architect was Sedefkar Mehmet Aa. It is the only mosquein Turkey with six minarets. The mosque is 72m long by 64m wide. The centraldome is 43m high and has a diameter of 33.4m and there are 260 windows. Due to

    its beautiful blue, green and white tiling, it has been named the Blue Mosque byEuropeans. The inscriptions were made by Seyyid Kasm Gubari.

    TopkapPalace Museum

    The Topkapi Palace Museum is located on the promontory of the historical peninsula in Istanbul whichoverlooks both the Marmara Sea and the Istanbul strait. The walls enclosing the palace grounds, the maingate on the land side and the first buildings were built during the time of Fatih Sultan Mehmet (the Conqueror)(1451-1481). The palaces present layout stems from additionalstructures built in later centuries. Topkap Palace was the officialresidence of the Ottoman Sultans, starting with Fatih Sultan Mehmetuntil 1856 when Sultan Abdlmecid I moved the administrative centre

    of the state to the Dolmabahe Palace. The Enderun section alsogained importance as a school.

    In the 18th century, when the Topkap Palace took its final shape, it was sheltering a population of more than10,000 people in its outer (Birun), inner (Enderun) and Harem sections. It shows no architectural unity as newparts were added in every period according to the needs. However, this helps in tracking the stages OttomanArchitecture went through from the 15th to the middle of the 19th century at the Topkap Palace. Thebuildings of the 15th-17th centuries are simpler and those of the 18th-19th centuries, particularly in terms ofexterior and interior ornamentation, are more complex.

    Topkap Palace was turned into a museum in 1924. Parts of the Palace such as the Harem, Baghdat Pavilion,Revan Pavilion, Sofa Pavilion, and the Audience Chamber distinguish themselves with their architectural

    assets, while in other sections artifacts displayed reflect the palace life. The museum also has collectionsfrom various donations and a library.

    Kapalar(Covered Bazaar)

    It is the oldest and biggest closed bazaar in the world, also known as the GrandBazaar, and has an estimated 4,000 shops and over 60 alleyway, covering a hugelabyrinth in the city centre. The original two structures, covered with a series of

    domes and remains from the 15th century walls, became a shopping area bycovering the surrounding streets and adding to it over the following centuries. InOttoman times, this was the centre of trading and a vital area of town. The Sandal

    Bedesten was added during Sleymans reign to cope with the rising trade in fabrics in the 16th century.

    Msr ars(Egyptian Bazaar)

    Also known as the Spice Market, this is Istanbuls second bazaar, constructed inthe same complex as Yeni Camii (or New Mosque). There are six gates whichmake it an attractive exterior. The L-shaped market, along with the mosque, wasbuilt for the mother of Mehmet IV, a powerful woman who ruled the harem and,some would say, much of the empire.

    Dolmabahe Palace

    Built in the reign of Sultan Abdlmecid I during the 19th century,this over-ornate palace lies along the European coast of theIstanbul strait. Dolmabahe Palace was constructed between1843 and 1856, mixing different European artistic influences andbuilt by Abdlmecids architect, Karabet Balya. It was built on

    three levels, and symmetrically planned, with 285 chambers and43 halls. It has a 600m long pier along the river, with two hugemonumental gates. The palace is surrounded by well-maintained and immaculate gardens, with an immense56-columned greeting hall, with 750 lights illuminated from 4.5 tons of crystal chandelier. The entrance was

    used to meet and greet Sultans and the harem was opposite the ceremonial hall. The interior decoration,furniture, silk carpets and curtains all remain with little defect.

    Rumeli Castle

    Rumeli Castle is a fortress located in the Saryer district of Istanbul on a hill on theEuropean side of the Bosphorus. It was built in 1452 by Sultan Mehmet theConqueror, in defense against the final attack on Istanbul. This attack led to thedownfall of the Byzantine Empire. Today, the castles amphitheater hosts a varietyof concerts and performances.

    Galata Tower

    The 55 meter medieval stone tower, providing a panoramic view of the old town, was built bythe Genoese as a part of the wall surrounding their district directly opposite to Byzantium.The tower is now a touristic restaurant and a night club.

    Sleymaniye Mosque

    This outstanding piece of architecture was built in 1762 by thefamous Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan for Sultan Suleyman the Magnificient.Standing on a hilltop of the ancient city, it interlaces gracefully with the citysskyline.

    A. INNER CITY

    Istanbul is a large, congested, crowded city. It is as complicated as all the other metropoles in the world.

    Even though the public transportation network is quite big, you will enjoy your visit more if you know how toget around. IETT is (Istanbul Electric Tramway and Tunnel) the enterprise of Istanbul MetropolitanMunicipality and responsible for most of the public transportation media in Istanbul.

    Public BusPublic BusPublic BusPublic Bus service is provided by IETT. The bus network is quite wide in Istanbul and buses are used bymany people everyday. But a good advice for rush hours would be to use vehicles which will not be affectedby the traffic jam. General information can be found in the website of IETT (www.iett.gov.tr/en/index.php), aswell as detailed transportation maps and a How can I go there? application.

    SubwaySubwaySubwaySubway is used by around 400.000 people everyday. There are two lines, one runsbetween Atatrk Airport and Aksaray, the other between Taksim and 4. Levent with

    two connection lines to ihane and Atatrk Oto Sanayi. A detailed railway map

    can be found in the website of Istanbul Transportation Company stanbulUlam(www.istanbululasim.com.tr/en/default.asp).

    MetrobusMetrobusMetrobusMetrobus is the bus line which has its own road like a tram. With three different line numbers,transportation between Sogutlucesme (in Asian Side) and Avcilar (in European side) is provided.

    TramsTramsTramsTrams are also regulated by the Istanbul Transportation Company. There are three mainlines: T1 Zeytinburnu- Kabatas, T2 Gungoren-Bagcilar and T4 Topkap-Habibler. Also twonostalgic trams are running, one in Asian side between Kadikoy and Moda the other inTaksim on Istiklal Street.

    TaxisTaxisTaxisTaxis in Istanbul are yellow and have the sign TAKS on the top. Sometimes you can get

    the feeling that all the cars are taxis in Istanbul. Especially at night you see yelloweverywhere. They run with a taxi-meter and you pay the price written on it at the end ofthe ride.

    HavaHavaHavaHava is the ground handling services company which has shuttles betweenairports and city centers in many cities. In Istanbul, From Atatrk Airport there areshuttles to Taksim, Kozyatagi and Bakrkoy. From Sabiha Gokcen Airport shuttlebuses go to Kozyatagi, Taksim and Izmit. The ticket price is higher than normal bus

    tickets but it saves a lot time since you do not make any stops inbetween. For shuttleschedule and fares please check the website of Hava (www.havas.net).

    TicketsTicketsTicketsTickets

    Akbil (SmartTicket) is the prepaid ticket which is very commonly used in Istanbul.There are daily, weekly and 15-day BlueAkbil whereas you can have a regularAkbil and charge it as much as you want. Akbil is valid in Bus, Subway, SeaBuses, Metrobus, Regional Trains and boats as well. If you do not have any smart

    ticket you can pay the bus driver but the price will be almost twice as much as thenormal price.

    C. GENERAL HINTS FOR TRANSPORTATION

    Almost all intercity bus companies have free shuttles to the main bus terminal from the branch officesfor free. Do not forget to ask the schedule for shuttles when you buy your ticket.

    In all cities public buses, you will see the line number in front of the bus as well as the start and endstop of the route. The same information can be seen next to the front door.

    You can enter the public buses only from the front door/ and normally you need to use other doors toget out from the bus.

    It is not common to give tip to the driver in taxis but people usually round off the price to uppernumber and do not get any change back.

    For any question about travelling you can contact the official travel agency DETUR(Tel: +90 212 347 46 30) - www.detur.com.tr

    In Turkey the speed limit on highways is120 km/h and on national roads 90 km/h. This limit decreasesto 50 km/h in on city roads.

    Turkey is a very safe country, but like in all other big cities in the world you should pay a little moreattention on your valuables especially in all public transport vehicles.

    C. MIXED ZONE PROCEDURES

    During the 2010 FIBA World Championship games, players, coaches and other team delegation staff will beable to meet members of the media in the Mixed Zones set-up at each venue.

    The concept of the Mixed Zone is to create an informal meeting area for post-game interviews.Players and coaches are encouraged to be available for interviews, but they are not obliged to giveinterviews and could go straight to their locker rooms. If both parties respect this rule, the process will bemade considerably easier.

    The Mixed Zone will be placed on the route used by players and coaches while leaving the court and headingto the locker rooms. The Mixed Zone is only accessible to teams and accredited members of the media andcannot be accessed by spectators.

    All players and coaches will use the team entrance doors before games and at half-time breaks. However, atthe end of the games these doors will be closed and teams will only be able to reach the locker rooms byusing the Mixed Zone route. Players and coaches must refrain from using prohibited areas/routes.

    Application procedures related to the Mixed Zone will be announced and explained to team representativesat the technical meeting held the day before the Championship begins.

    In the Mixed Zone, pathways will be formed by barriers for players and coaches to head towards the lockerrooms and where the media will be kept behind the pathway barriers. Between the end of games, and until

    the entry of the teams to the Mixed Zone is completed, the entrance of the zone will be closed to members ofthe media for two to three minutes. Media wishing to be present in the Mixed Zone should get there a fewminutes before the end of the games to avoid being prevented from accessing to the Mixed Zone by securitypersonnel.

    Video interviews in the Mixed Zone must be done in front of the interview backdrops.

    Rights holders will be given special post-game interview positions within the mixed zones. Accordingly, orderof priority for interviewing the players and coaches in the Mixed Zone will be as follows:

    Host Broadcaster

    ENG Rights Holder (TV)

    Print and online media as well as TV and radio non-rights holders

    All of the non-rights holders will conduct their interviews exclusively in the Mixed Zone.

    While working in the Mixed Zone, members of the media shall not be excessively or irritatingly insistent, theyshall respect the decision of players and coaches whether or not to give an interview and they will follow thedirectives of the authorities who are assigned by FIBA/LOC.

    FIBA and the LOC have the right to cancel the accreditations of any members of the media that do not obeythe rules that are listed for the Mixed Zone.

    The teams are required to scrupulously follow the rules for leaving the court after the game through themixed zone. Non-appliance may result in disciplinary and/or financial sanctions against the team.

    Ministry of Health, universities, the Ministry of Defence and private health professionals.

    In general, hospitals have good medical facilities especially in big cities and have many excellent doctorswith extensive training and experience. State hospitals are usually better equipped and cheaper than privatehospitals. However, private hospitals are generally less crowded and give a higher quality service.

    In case of possible emergency situations, carry with you a certain amount of Turkish currency or your creditcard (VISA or MasterCard preferred) as hospitals may expect to be paid immediately for their service.

    It might be useful to get one pre-paid number from one of the GSM operators, if you will need to make manynational phone calls in Turkey. Your registered number vanishes naturally if you do not load any credit for 6months.

    5. Turkish CuisineTurkish cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described asthe fusion and fruit of the refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern and Balkancuisines. Turkish cuisine has in turn influenced neighbouring cuisines. The Ottomansfused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Middle Easterncuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia, creating a vastarray of specialities, many with strong regional associations.

    Every region has its own specialities. In Aegean Region, olive oil is widely used and the typical food isMediterranean cuisine, whereas in Eastern Region there are more meat dishes and kebabs with very hotspices.

    Kebabs, cold appetizers (mezes), olive oil dishes (dolma, sarma, etc.), special pastries (brek, simit, poaa,etc.), pasta specialities (kekek, mant, gzleme, etc.), fresh fish, ottoman dishes and delicious deserts(baklava, kazandibi, etc.) are worth a try while you are in Turkey.

    6. Shopping

    a) General

    Whether you are in Turkey for a few days or a few weeks, shopping is usually an essential part of the visit.Turkish carpets, for example, are beautiful and quite valuable since they are hand woven with unique designsmade with materials dyed with natural colours. Each region of Turkey has its own design and the silk carpetsare of course the most valuable. Some carpets can take up to eighteen months to be made by one weaver. Inaddition, leather and jewellery (gold and silver) are favourite purchases. It is worth trying to get a cheaperprice, especially in bazaars and small shops, although some prices are fixed. It is not usual to ask for a pricereduction in Shopping Malls or major brands.

    b) Bazaars

    Bazaars are traditional shopping areas in Turkey specializing in a particular type of product or manufacture.They are also often beautiful monuments varying in size and architectural style. Bargaining is very common ifyou are buying from bazaars.
