In my humble opinion Instambul is between the most beautiful cities in the world. Not just by what I see in this thread, but also by all I´ve seen about it in the SSC. It has wonderfull architecture, the sea, it seens very live, much colorful (something I don´t like in many european big cities is that they are too much monochromatic), the palaces, castles. It´s a place I really would like to visit.

I glad you like the pictures. For me, Brasil is a very nice country too. I would like to visit there as well.

They are residential buildings. Most of them were constructed during the late Ottoman period.

Istanbul is somewhat underrated, I think (at least in America). It's really quite gorgeous. Many of the buildings are so bright and colorful and warm. It also has that great low-rise density so characteristic of European cities, which I love. Great tour.
