In this coffee-table book, the authors reveal the unique lifestyle and hidden splendors of Istanbul, inciting us to discover an infinite variety of charming private homes, delicate wooden yalis, and magnificent palaces on the European and Asian shores of the Bosporus. These sumptuous dwellings -- whether modern or traditional, intimate or spectacular -- are imbued with the magic of the water and light, of copper and wood, and a sophisticated combination of Eastern and Western influences. The color photographs unveil the secrets of Istanbul, while an extensive visitor's guide to hotels, restaurants, traditional shops, museums, and other attractions provides information for the discriminating traveller to discover Istanbul's countless delights.
