There is more than 10 million people living in the metro area of Istanbul. Due to the large amount of traffic, you will probably want to use public transportation.

The primary religion of its peoples is Islam, though there are large Christian and Jewish populations as well. Istanbul is Turkey's economic center, as well as culturally important.
