Istanbul is the capital city of Turkey and one of the largest cities in the world. It is a natural hub for trade, industry, education and tourism. The city is also politically important as it is the seat of government, chief command center and centre of transportation. Over sixty percent of Turkey’s population lives in Istanbul, making it one of the most populated cities in the world. Istanbul is home to over thirteen million people and is one of the most congested and polluted cities on Earth. Despite all these facts, Istanbul has an interesting history that makes it a unique place to live.
When Istambul was founded on the banks of the Bosphorus and Marmara Sea, it was named after Byzantium, which is now known as Istanbul. At that time, the Greek peninsula was called Constantinople and eventually gained its name. The first part of the name comes from Greek and refers to a сentre or division; the second part comes from boulo which means to bring forward or carry; and the last part references helios which means sun or light. Thus, the name means “bring forward or carry by the sun’s light”.
Before 1453, when the Ottoman Empire took over Constantinople, it was the largest city in Europe. The inner districts were mainly Greek and Christian while the outer districts were mostly Muslim. Many European traders made their homes in Constantinople so they could easily access markets in Asia Minor and Greece. In addition, many universities were based in Constantinople so tradesmen could learn new skills and update their knowledge base. Because of this diversity, many people called Constantinople a “porte cochère” which means “main gate”. Over time this evolved into “Istanbul” which means “the city” in English.
To this day, Istanbul is a natural market for Turkish companies because it is a global city that is a natural market for Turkish companies. Istanbul is also an excellent place to educate young people because there are many universities in Istanbul. In fact, there are over sixty colleges and universities in Istanbul alone— making it one of the most populated cities in Europe with over fourteen million inhabitants. Since most international students go to colleges run by Turkish universities, Istanbul hosts a large number of international students despite having such a large Turkish population. In addition, since Turkey is an economically stable country with growing industries, there are many job opportunities for Turkish citizens living abroad.
Although there are many challenges associated with being an international student in Istanbul, there are also many benefits. Living in such a diverse city opens people’s eyes to cultural differences which makes them more adaptable to other countries’ cultures as well. Being an important trading hub helps local businesses succeed so international students have plenty to do without affecting local businesses’ success rates either. Lastly, living in such a popular holiday spot makes travel easy for anyone so anyone can spend time abroad no matter where they come from or what they want to do.
