Today's Istanbul, once the Byzantine capital of Constantinople, is the economic, social and cultural nucleus of Turkey and the nation's pride. Istanbul means livelihood, opportunity, constant movement and much more, just like any other metropolis. The city has changed considerably over the years. This change in every sphere of life is beyond anyone's imagination. Modern life overlaps the traditional Turkish way of life; in brief, East meets West here.
The climate in Turkey offers a wealth of opportunities, including skiing in winter and sun-drenched beaches in summer. Despite radical climate changes throughout the world, we still have four seasons here, therefore instructors are recommended to bring with them clothing suitable for every weather condition.
