‘Before you die, take a Bosphorus tour’
by Ralph Kratzer
You do not know what you should do with your time? You think you’ve seen everything in the world? Looking for inspiration for your next holiday? Then look at the list of 50 places in Europe, which you should have seen in your life…
This nice little post I found in the newspaper Hürriyet Daily News:
The Bosphorus Strait that runs through Turkey’s largest city, Istanbul, has been named as one of the 50 places in Europe a person should visit in their lifetime, according to Business Insider magazine.
The waterway bisecting the European and Asian shores of Istanbul was the 39th item in the list thanks to its “geographic uniqueness.”
Meanwhile, the list begins and ends with France. The first “to-do” on the list is to take a “stroll along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, in the south of France,” while number 50 is to “admire Claude Monet’s enormous series of ‘Water Lily’ murals at the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris.”
