Maybe you've been to Istanbul once, twice, even three times before. You feel ready to explore in more depth the stories of this ancient city. But where do you start in the city that spans two continents? 

You’ll take a virtual tour of Istanbul this episode, where Soumaya's joined by Haktan Tursun, Coordinator at Ibn Khaldun University, Islamic history and architecture enthusiast and an expert local guide in Istanbul. If you like mosques and Islamic architecture, you’ll love Haktan’s stories of Mimar Sinan, the great Ottoman architect behind some of the most beautiful Islamic architecture in the world. You’ll also find out how best to explore the stories etched into the walls of Istanbul, as well those waiting to be uncovered from underground.
