Istanbul, the city at the crossroads of Asia & Europe, has come a long way since the Ottoman Turks captured it back in 1453. The beautiful #Bosphorus shores are now laced with modern skyscrapers and business centers, with the ancient Galata Tower still peering out as a testament to its history as a Genovese trading post. A new Netflix mini-series shows the amazing story of the siege and takeover of this majestic city, a recommended watch for any history buffs.
