Well, I think people's knowledge and travel experience to London, Paris, and perhaps even Frankfurt are stronger than Istanbul if we were to take a cross section sample of the world.

Turkey lies in the crossroads of Europe of Asia. Istanbul on the other hand is in the European side

Istanbul lies on both sides of the Bosporous, hence is in both Asia and Europe.

But just like Israel, they more associate with Europe than with Asia

Geographically, Istanbul is both in Europe and Asia. Association is not a valid reason to overrule geographic reality.

The Australians are associated with the British due to historic ties (although that association is being tested these days). Yet I don't see them as being part of Europe at all.

Association doesn't change the fact that I'm located in Asia.

That's true. I've been to all mentioned except Istanbul. But photos look great!

I'm actually quite interested in seeing a mix of historic lowrises and modern skyscrapers. Having a skyscrapered landscape doesn't give a European city much uniqueness compared to other parts of the world. The coupling of both old and new will definitely make for a nice contrast. Once the dust settles in London, perhaps we can see how well the two extremes can co-exist.

Number 1. FRANKFURT (for sure)

2. PARIS/ISTANBUL
4.LONDON
5.WARSAW

Note: MOSCOW will be a big rival to all of them in 2-3 years.
