A boat ride at Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul is one of the to-do-list for most tourists. It’s a 32 km (20-mile)-long strait which joins the Sea of Marmara to the south with the Black Sea to the north of Istanbul. You can see Europe and Asia on this ride.
Interesting part is to see Fishermen on Galata Bridge from where the cruise or boat ride starts. From the picture it might seem that Fishing is Turkey’s national pasttime.
On a weekend you can find scores of people with fishing rods standing there for a long time. There are lot of learners and many professionals.
I did tried my hand but wasn’t successful. Next time when you are in Istanbul keep half day spare for fishing at Galata Bridge. And don’t forget to get a click of your catch. 😉
