The city of culture, the city where continents meet. Original video was produced by Veysel Gencten but I changed the music, shortened the clip and published it just after the day of the big celebrations throughout the city; Istanbul is a joint European Capital of Culture in 2010.

Istanbul (Turkish: İstanbul, historically also known as Byzantium and Constantinople) is the largest city in Turkey and fifth largest city proper in the world with a population of 12.6 million. Istanbul is also a megacity, as well as the cultural and financial centre of Turkey. It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbour known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) sides of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents.

In its long history, Istanbul has served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330 - 395), the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395 - 1204 and 1261 - 1453), the Latin Empire (1204 - 1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453 - 1922).

Music is in Turkish and performed by Gulay.
Lyrics are:
Mor sümbüllü bağım olsa
Som altından dağım olsa
Şu İstanbul benim olsa
Neye yarar sesin yoksa

Yedi cihanda izim olsa
Her köşede sözüm olsa
Şu İstanbul benim olsa
Neye yarar sesin yoksa

Şarkılar kanadım olsa
Uçup konsam dalım olsa
Şu istanbul benim olsa
Neye yarar sesin yoksa
