Exotic Istanbul Virtual Walk
A One-hour Virtual Walk in Istanbul, TurkeyDownloadable Video - 2013
Why not exercise on your treadmill by taking a 60 minute Virtual Walk in one of the most exotic cities in the world! Istanbul... exotic, mysterious, steeped in the history and the grandeur of sultans, mosques, souks, spices, and Turkish carpets! This Virtual Walk contains the sights and sounds of a walk recorded on a sunny day in November, walking in the midst of a sea of faces. During your one-hour Virtual Walk you will begin at the Galata Bridge which spans the Golden Horn, then walk through the Spice Market - also known as the Egyptian Bazaar - which is the second largest covered shopping complex in Istanbul. Then on to the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (also known as the Blue Mosque) and a quick tour of its courtyard then through the Imperial Gate and into the First (outer) Courtyard of the Topkapi Palace with its beautiful tree-lined wide walkways. Next, another quick tour of the courtyard of the New Mosque built in 1597 before entering the Grand Bazaar for a 10 minute tour. The Grand Bazaar is one of the oldest covered markets in the world and has over 3,000 shops which attracts over 250,000 visitors daily and you'll zig and zag in order to dodge most of them. This 60 minute virtual walk is accompanied by the natural sounds just as they were recorded in Stereo in Istanbul. Filmed in Widescreen.
