Short history of a wonderful city
Istanbul was colonized by the Greeks in the 7th century BC. It fell to the Roman Republic in 196 BC, and was known as Byzantium until 330, when it was renamed Constantinople and made the new capital of the Roman Empire. During late antiquity, the city rose to be the largest of the western world, with a population peaking to half a million people. Constantinople was the capital of the Byzantine Empire, which ended with the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Constantinople then became the capital of the Ottoman Empire.
When the Republic of Turkey was founded in 1923, the capital was moved from Constantinople to Ankara. Since 1930, the native name "Istanbul" has been the sole official name of the city in Turkish and has since replaced the traditional name "Constantinople" in most western languages as well.
Today Istanbul is the cultural center of Turkey. Emek Movie theater, Ataturk Cultural Center for music, opera and ballet, Sureyya Opera house are among the earliest buildings for making art accesible to all citizens. Istanbul modern Bosphorus bridge, Galata Bridge are also among the most important modern buildings.
