I think Istanbul is an undeveloped city in terms of cable cars. I saw just 2 place. Could be more. I felt the mystic atmosphere during the mosque visit. This mosque has an importance for Islamic people.

It was 3 hours but enough. We did not hurry while visiting the points. Our guide was a experienced one. We got the answers of all our questions. Even when we asked why Turks called the mosque as cami. It is consist of the Turkish meanings first letters of four angels.

I can say the shores of Golden Horn were crying because of neglect. It is used as a autopark of boats.
