The Bosphorus; It is a strait and international waterway separating the Asian and European continents and connecting the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. It divides the city of Istanbul into two as the European Side and the Anatolian (Asian) Side. The settlement areas spreading to both sides of the Bosphorus are called the Bosphorus. The 15 July Martyrs’ Bridge (Bosphorus Bridge) seen in the photograph is a suspension bridge over the Bosphorus Strait connecting the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. The legs of the bridge are in Ortaköy on the European Side and Üsküdar Beylerbeyi district on the Anatolian Side.
