This trip to Istanbul wasn´t the first one, we had the honor to meet the city one year ago. Both of our trips happend at the end of march and beginning of april. To be honest this time of the year is still a little bit too cold if you want to spend your days and evenings outside, especially doing Time Lapse photography. So, the next time we will choose may for Istanbul sightseeing.

Unfortunately the cold weather this year was not causing shooting problems, it was the rain. During half of the evenings we spent in Istanbul, it was raining. So we had to try our best and shoot as much as possible in the time without nasty rain.

Istanbul is realy an amazing city and there are so many stuffs which will make you speechless and looking stunning. For us the most magical thing are the lights, rather how the city looks when all lights are on and the contrasts which came to the fore in this moment. This is the reason why we most enjoyed the panoramic views at the night. Try to visit as many places and hills as you can when you stay there, this is our recommandation. On the European side there are many restaurants and cafes near the Suleymaniye mosque with amazing view at Eminonu pier, Bosphorus bridge, Galata bridge and Galata tower. Pier Lotti is also one „must“ stop, it´s very popular with amazing view on the Golden Horn. The view from the Galata tower is also stunning. Camlica Hill is the most famous hill at the Asian side. From this place you have a great view at the illuminated Bosphorus bridge, the whole Old town of Istanbul on the European side. It´s just astonishingly.

The contrasts in Istanbul make it special, too. This city used to be christian and muslim through its history so you will see a lot of Christan and Muslim monuments, churches and mosques. Churches which should be visited are the Chora Church, St.Anthony of Padua Church, St. George Church and a lot of other. The mosques are surprisingly big and special in their own way. So don´t forget to visit the most popular of them, the Blue or Sultan Ahmet mosque, New mosque in Eminonu, Suleymaniye mosque on the third hill, Sehzade mosque and many other. The most beautiful of all, in our opionion, is the Ortakoy Mosque located in the same named part of Istanbul just behind the Bosphorus bridge.

Unfortunately a lot of monuments, churches, mosques and other buildings are often under reconstruction. I think there is no time in Istanbul that some of the historical objects are not being renovated. For you as a tourist this might not be a huge problem, but if you make plans for something more, it could be.

Although this was our second time we traveled to Istanbul there are still places we weren´t able to see, outdoors and indoors. There is also a big problem in Istanbul if you want to shoot inside some mosque, museum or some similar object. There are even problems if you want to shoot or use tripod in the garden in front of it. This was a huge problem the first time, as well as the second time. But this time we were persistent and got managed to take footages inside the famous Hagia Sophia museum, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. A lot of effort, talking and permits were needed to make this happen.

Hopefully you can use some of these informations for your trip to Istanbul and have a great time there. It´s worth visiting. Enjoy our Istanbul in 4K video.
