Istanbul is one of the world's great historical cities.  As Constantinople, it was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, and it became the richest city in Europe.  In 1453 it was captured by the Ottomans.  It was commonly referred to as Istanbul, although the name Constantinople was retained for official purposes until 1930.  It is now the largest city in Turkey, with around 10 million residents.  Its location on the Bosphorus Strait makes it the only city in the world to be situated on two continents, Europe and Asia.
