Although few may realise it, Istanbul is one of the largest cities in Europe and it has enjoyed this reputation since antiquity. Thanks to its unique position on the Bosphorous waterway, this city is a major centre for trading and cultural exchange. It is also known by its traditional names of Byzantium and Constantinople. While Ankara is the current capital of Turkey, the numerous imperial palaces serve as silent testaments to the important role of Istanbul in the past.

Currently, more than eleven million holidaymakers visit Istanbul each year; allowing for a healthy tourism industry. In fact, it is the fifth most popular destination in Europe. This is due in no small part to its beautiful beaches, exquisite climate and eclectic nightlife. Istanbul is also considered to be one of the most tolerant cities and it is quite common for Christians and Muslims to live in close proximity. Some of the most famous attractions include the Hagia Sophia Museum, Beylerbeyi Palace and the idyllic Prince Islands located across the waterway to the southeast of the city centre.

Thanks to the sheer size and diversity of this location, a flower delivery to Istanbul and the surrounding areas is a popular gift idea. Indeed, there may be no better surprise than a bespoke and original bouquet.
