Istanbul is the largest city of Turkey.
During its long history, Istanbul has served as the capital 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).
The historic areas of the city were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.
