After seeing Allan presentation i`m now convinsed that istanbul is in the top 10 of most beautiful cities in the world.
Looking at the size i would say number one.
Rue Francaise is amazing.
The warterfront is very beautiful.
And the terrasses in the small allies is perfect.
Istanbul is the whole of europe in one city.
But that is offcource from only have seeing these pictures.
You are right, most tourists only go to that blue mosque area etc...and think they saw Istanbul and their conclusion=nice Middle Eastern city
Istanbul is much more than you see in these pictures....

There are superb newer classy districts out of the old city center etc...

I am glad I saw these pictures, since i didn't know it was so nice because most photos in this forum are on skyscrapers and Hagya Sofia and have heard much negative about the city. It is on my top 3 of must see cities in Europe now!
Very beautiful natural setting, very mixed architecture, nice weather, cosmopolitan atmosphere with many people on the streets, skyscrapers and looks also modern and wealthy. And it lies in 2 continents.

But why are the cabs so old (the other cars are modern)?

I think those cars are the most cheapest in Turkey. If you have no job, you can always afford buying a cheap car like that and use as a taxi.

But why are the cabs so old (the other cars are modern)?
cabs are old (or designs are old ) Because:
1. Taxi is very cheap here. You pay less than another country.
2. So they are popular and drive all the day kilometers. And working hard makes problem at the cars as you know. This is why drivers prefer such cars
3.These are native cars, Tofaş, and not famous in the world. So drivers can find cheap pieces for their cars
4.Istanbul has a big traffic problem, and drivers prefer cheap cars for this trafic.

However.....
Taxis wil be changed by municipality, although drivers don't want so much. Mayor wants a design wich represents the city...
