The moment you arrive in Istanbul is the best moment of your life.
A different city...
Here’s Istanbul! Magnificent and spectacular Istanbul! We thank the Creator a million times for this beauty. Who could dare to describe its beauty? It’s a moment when words fall short and the narrator becomes speechless. Istanbul packs many worlds into a single moment. “Dersaadet,” the city of happiness... “Islambol,” the city of Islam... In Mehmed the Conqueror’s words: “Either I conquer Istanbul or Istanbul conquers me.”
A different story...
“Keep quiet in order to hear,” said Shams. Istanbul has a lot to say to those who listen, and know enough to listen. This is why the poet listens to Istanbul with eyes closed. A whole different story remains hidden in stanbul in the call to prayer as it rises to the heavens from the four minerates of the Süleymaniye Mosque. It’s in the crow of a seagull, the horn of a ship plowing through the fog, and in the frantic footsteps in the Grand Bazaar and Galata… It captures the listener and the narrator...
A different time...
At some point, fatigue falls onto the shoulders of this city. When the streets become weary of the crowds, the seagulls tire of the never-ending sky, and homes with oriel windows of the marks ingrained on their bodies over he years, isn’t it time to walk way? But walk away to where?
Necip Fazıl who said what many have felt: “Istanbul, my precious one... My country, oh my country.” How could people just go and leave the country where their roots are? That’s when it’s time to look for a different Istanbul. A different Istanbul must start with a clean slate. It’s a place that inherits the best of Istanbul but comes to life with brand new energy and enthusiasm...
A whole different Istanbul…New Istanbul
