From Constantinople to Istanbul: A Travelers’ Tale


Course description

In this course, you will be introduced to the history of one of the oldest cities in the world by exploring places that were created and inhabited by those who ruled it, lived in it or visited it. We will look at buildings, ports, bridges, railroads, parks, streets, squares, graveyards and the straits of Istanbul, all which represent significant events and moments in the distant and contemporary history of the city. Some of the places we will cover include: Yenikapi as a new transportation hub, but also as an archeological site going back 8,000 years; the new residential and industrial district of Beylikduzu; the Gezi Park where thousands of protestors gathered in 2013; the Golden Horn, the long-gone Roman Hippodrome; and the famous Hagia Sophia.
