Beautiful Ortakoy Mosque in Istanbul, close view.


İstanbul has hot and dry summers and cold and rainy winters. But, generally, the ratio of sunny days is much more than rainy and cloudy days in a year.

As the city lays 95 km from one end to another, the weather can even show different faces inside the city.
While it was raining on European side, you can enjoy the hot sun on Asian side.

You don’t see much of a spring or autumn as summers and winters are longer. Seasons change very quickly.
While August is the hottest month and the most humid, March mostly shows up with coldest weather and rarely snow can be seen.

A world center of great value in the past as well as in the present, İstanbul embraces Asia on the one hand and Europe on the other.
