Turkey

Istanbul was more than we expected.
It was filled with history, cosmopolitan and culture.
We visited historical monuments like the Aya Sofia and right across from it was the Blue Mosque. These mosques are quite different from Christian Churches where it's quite empty and peaceful inside, whereas the other type of churches are quite busy with statues, pews, and other grand ornamental items. There were tons of people at the markets, you would be squished trying to pass through the busy streets lined with spices, candy, meat and various underwear and clothing. On the bridge, you see would-be fishermen lined across the entire place. We were there at the end of Ramadan so we were able to catch the nightly festivals.
