14th EFORT Congress 2013
Istanbul | 5-8 June 2013

Located in the centre of the old world, this exotic city is famous for its historical monuments and scenic views. It is the only city in the world which spreads over two continents – Asia and Europe, which are separated by the narrow strait of the Bosphorus.

With a population of around 13 million, Istanbul is the third most crowded city in the world after Mumbai and Mexico. This historic city is situated on a peninsula flanked on three sides by the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn. The European side of Istanbul is called Thrace and the Asian side is called Anatolia. The city has 39 districts making up the metropolitan municipality.

Istanbul is adorned with the masterpieces of Turkish art, the great mosques of the Sultans that crown the hills. The city presents an exquisite, majestic and serene silhouette from all directions.
The Golden Horn, which is a very secure natural harbour, has played a significant role in the development of the city.
Even if you spend only a short time in Istanbul, you can see much of its great heritage. Although renowned for its mystery and history, Istanbul is also a rapidly modernising country with a prime location – one foot in Europe and one in the Middle East. Thus Istanbul retains its fascinating differences and contradictions. Mosques coexist alongside churches, and remains from the Roman Empire still stand alongside ancient Hittite and Neolithic sites.

Its variety is one of Istanbul's greatest attractions. The ancient mosques, palaces, museums and bazaars reflect its diverse history. The thriving shopping area of Taksim buzzes with life and entertainment. And the quiet beauty of the Istanbul Strait, Princes' Islands and parks bring a touch of peace to the otherwise chaotic metropolis.

We look forward to welcoming you to Istanbul for the 14th EFORT Congress
