Traditional Turkish houses have gained an iconic status both domestically and internationally. With calls for their preservation and renovation, some historians worry their demise will remove traces of history. Some experts also want to keep them intact so future generations will remember their cultural heritage.

Long-time visitors and residents have seen massive changes over the last decade as Turkey modernises its real estate market, but changes happened long before now.

The 28-mile Istanbul Canal project is an ambitious endeavour by the Turkish government to build a new shipping route. The artificial waterway will link the Black and Marmara seas and create a new island on the European side of Turkey’s biggest and most populated city.

City skylines tell a lot about people who inhabit it, and Istanbul’s tallest buildings are no exception. Standing out among minarets of mosques, bridges, and iconic landmarks, they stand for a generation who strives to break records.

One reason travelling around Turkey is not only fun but also educational, is the assorted styles of architecture throughout the country. Two styles of architecture are especially well respected in Turkey, and they are Ottoman and Seljuk.
