The boat ride we took to see the Bosphorus bridge was the most refreshing boat rides we had taken. Not only it lasted for 1.5 hours but it also offered one of the most beautiful coastal views. The feeling of being in this part of the world on a boat near the worlds narrowest strait was just unbelievable. We stayed out on the deck all through the ride and took lots of pictures.

The Bosphorus also known as the Istanbul Strait is a strait that forms part of the boundary between Europe and Asia. The world’s narrowest strait used for international navigation, it connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara (which is connected by the Dardanelles to the Aegean Sea, and thereby to the Mediterranean Sea.
