Istanbul, formerly Constantinople, has one foot firmly planted in Asia and one in Europe. Divided by the busy Bosphorus river, Istanbul presents its different faces to the world, from minarets, mosques and grand palaces to towering skyscrapers and colorful sleek buildings. It is an ancient city, steeped in history with Byzantine and Ottoman influences but at the same time it is a hotspot in Europe, with a vibrant nightlife, many restaurants and bars, and a booming financial center.
At ODS Turkey, based in Istanbul, we know the best venues, the best intimate restaurants, which give that special magical touch to events, conferences and incentives.

SPICE MARKET; One of the oldest covered bazaars in Istanbul, the Spice Bazaar in Eminönü located behind the Yeni Mosque and next to the flower market, was established by Sultan Turhan, and designed by architect Kazim Aga. It was given a new lease of life by the Municipality of Istanbul after its restoration between 1940 and 1943. Open every day except Sundays, it sells herbs, spices, a variety of natural medicines, and plant and flower seeds. Beside these traditional commodities, one can now find a large range of dried fruits and nuts, cheeses, meats and other foods.
GRAND BAZAAR ; Shopping experience of a lifetime: the construction started in the 15th century, right after the conquest of Istanbul by Sultan Mehmet, and galleries were added during the years to form today’s labyrinth of shops, grouped in streets according to the trade.
Silver, jeweller, leather goods, carpets, antiques, copper, even furniture make the Bazaar even today a major shopping center for natives and tourists.
