Istanbul is the commercial, historical, and cultural pulse of the country, and its beauty lies in its capacity to reconcile its differences. In Istanbul, you may see ancient and modern, religious and secular; Asia and Europe; mystical and earthly all co-existing. UNESCO designated the Sultanahmet Old City (Sultanahmet) region as part of Turkey's World Heritage Site list in 1985.
Istanbul was the capital of both the Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire. It is still Turkey's primary commercial center.
