📷 Istanbul, 2024

Istanbul is a city full of contrasts, and you never really know what’s around the corner, which makes it really interesting to explore.

Several days in this bustling city with such a rich history is definitely not enough, and I just scratched the surface.

I hope the following photos evoke the city’s lively atmosphere.

P.S. Although Turkey is renowned for its traditional Turkish coffee and teas, the specialty coffee culture in Istanbul is thriving, and there are several nice places.

My favorites are Kava Coffee and Parsa Coffee, but more on that another time…
