You will see this beautiful suspension bridge at its best when you take a cruise on the Bosphorus. It is a very important feat of engineering, connecting Europe to Asia. Its design is iconic, and it is a symbol for the city, rather like the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

This massive bridge is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world! It connects Asia to Europe across the Bosphorus and is really an impressive sight, especially from the water. If you have the chance, view it at night when the lights chase each other across the span in patterns.

The Bosphorus Bridge is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world and one of the few that spans two continents. The bridge is suprisingly slender and elegant despits its length. You can see it from much of the city, though the best views are in the Ortakoy neighborhood. During Republic Day they actually shoot fireworks and lazers off the bridge.

Very cool when it is lit up at night and is best seen in Ortakoy on the Golden Horn side of the bridge. You will be lucky if you find a restaurant that has a good view of the bridge.

It was officially opened in 1973 and at the time was the 4th longest suspension bridge in the world. It is unique in that it connects two continents, that of Europe and Asia. There is not much to do there though, besides drive across. You can't walk across it anymore.

The Bosphorus Bridge has a nice after-dark light show. However, you wouldn't want to be travelling across it during one of the frequent traffic jams.

This bridge connecting Asia and Europe is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. It is worth taking one of the boat tours endlessly being hawked on the streets just to see this bridge from the water, especially at night when it is lit up!

The Bosphorus Bridge is cross the Bosphorus strait which connecting Europe and Asia Continental. It is located between Ortaköy (on the European side) and Beylerbeyi (on the Asian side). The Bosphorus Bridge views are different interested in day and night. Might be night views are more attractive to any tourists.

Nice biridge established in 1973 . İt is the first bridge connects Europe to Asia. You should have dinner in the bosphorous to see this magnific bridge but be careful of the expensive restaurants along side the sea. They are always fish restaurants so they are very expensive

This is one of the two road bridges that connect the Asian and European side of Istanbul. The bridge provides a magnificent view. It is especially wonderful at night. The best way to see it is by the various cruises that operate on the Bosphorous

I like bridges, there is something special bout them. The Bosphorus Bridge not only joins two continents, it brings together Europe and Asia. Like all great constructions it was built with the sweat and toil of many whose names we will never know, some of whom perished in the process. It is a monument to what can be acheived when we humans work together. It is spectacular, the lightshow is wonderful but this great bridge is audacious in several ways.

If you could stand in the middle of the bridge, you would be straddling two continents. What over bridge can brag about that? Beautifully light up at night and the main passage between Asia and Europe, it was the longest suspension bridge ever built outside of the USA when it was first completed.

If you want some bragging rights you might want to take a ride across the Bosphorus Bridge from the European side of Turkey over to the Asian side. You will be able to say you were on two continents. The Asian side of the city is quite different from the European side.
