Istanbul - Melting pot of cultures, meeting point of continents:
- 11.6 million visitors a year
- Where Europe and Asia kiss each other
- Last stop of the Orient Express - but only temporarily.
- Why do people get in line at/for Mehmet Efendi?
Istanbul is being transformed at full speed. The city has already shed the skin of its history and invented itself anew numerous times, and perhaps this is now taking place again. To comprehend Istanbul, one must understand its history. Whoever strolls through its quarters today will constantly catch an intimation of its history, a piece of skin which has been stripped off, tiny stones of a mosaic on which the inhabitants of Istanbul have been working for centuries and which will never be finished because they are constantly reinventing not only their city, but also themselves. The book deals with 111 mosaic stones from yesterday, today, and tomorrow - some of which glow in colorful splendor, while others emanate an uncanny fragrance.
