Stunning pics. I think Istanbul is by far, the most artistic city in the world.

Asian part is beautiful , but very small , when you compare it with the european part. Naturally european part is extremely diverse, asian too according to its size.

Great pics Allan! Especially the first one! Pure magic!

@PRSN,

Maybe you've been to wrong places at the Asian side. It's more residential but still have breathtaking places.

"Asian part is as big as the european one."
The settlements are much smaller in asian side , but still is very big. I am talking about the settlements and towns , not the whole area. Even the whole area is smaller , when you compare.
Messiah , you are showing a topographic aerial photo , that does not show the limits of the city of Istanbul. Asian part has more forests and less denser than european ,as ratio. Most of the population is leaving in european side. Both parts have beautiful and fascinating diversity.

"I'm still sure that asian part is as big as the european part"
I am not a migrant , or outsider regarding to the relation of Istanbul . I have an eternal heritage to Istanbul from the Byzantine times. I've examined so many demographic , geodesic documents regarding to that.

Hi prsn41life,
above you can see Leandertower, Haydarpasa Station, Kuleli Askeri Lisesi and others. These are famous Places on Asian Side of Istanbul. And there are more, for example:

Semsi Pasa, Üsküdar, near the ferryterminal


Marmara University near Haydarpasa,

Selimiye Kislasi and Selimiye Cami (Selimiye Barraks and Selimiye Mosque) in Üsküdar (in the barraks you can find Florence Nightingale Museum)


Salacak - Üsküdar (and almost everywhere at bosphorus are other great houses)


Really nice is kadiköy with old ferry stations, the famous ballon, old churches, modern clubs and cafes


In Kadiköy you might find this place, it's one of the central places near bus- and ferrystation and the church is not only museum but also in daily use:



Also on Asian part and not that crowed like Rumeli Hisari is the Fortress Anadolu Kavagi

And because it's really big you can find thousands of other great places in Asian Istanbul too - you just have to find guides knowing a little bit more than Eminönü and Sultanahmet ...
