This 1993 photograph, depicted a view of Istanbul, Turkey, from the Bosphorus, which is the winding strait that separates Europe from Asia. The Bosphorus is its own tourist destination, with a mixture of modern hotels, and stone fortresses, as well as fishing villages. Istanbul, as can be seen from the photo, has air pollution problems, similar to many of the world’s largest cities. The city is increasingly becoming a business destination, as well as a place for tourists.
