offered to show me perhaps the most impressive. this is the mosque of sulemain. sulemain was the ottoman emperor who ruled for 47 years. this is the biggest imperial mosque in istanbul. this mosque was financed by the sultan. they were all built in seven years. this stands on the slopes of the hill, so from most parts of the city, you can see this mosque. napoleon once said that if all the world were one country, then this city would hear its capital. running through the heart of istanbul is the mighty bosporus. on one side sits europe, on the other, asia. for thousands of years, it has carried cargo and passengers between the two, and also served as a gateway between the black sea and the mediterranean, making this one of the most important stretches of water in the world. and a nice view, as well. yes. tragically, it was here on the banks of the bosporus that terrorists struck on new year's eve, 2016, when they attacked an open—air nightclub. it was just the latest in a series of incidents that should confidence and badly affect the city's already struggling tourist industry.
