Istanbul has been heralded as the ‘World’s Hippest City’. Spanning both sides of the Bosporus strait, Turkeys most populous city bridges the continents of Asia and Europe both physically and culturally. This city throbs with activity; get lost in the markets, absorb the aromas of tea and spices and then unwind in a traditional hamam (Turkish bath). As the sun sets dramatically over the Ottoman mosques the stylish bars and restaurants come to life. This timelapse video from Max Moos gives a glimpse into the Istanbul buzz.
