Visit Istanbul: architecture, bathhouses, and cocktails

Istanbul is confusing and fascinating with a rich past and a vibrant present. Ambitious architectural projects such as the Istanbul Modern Contemporary Art Museum, designed by Renzo Piano, and the Istanbul Museum of Painting and Sculpture, designed by Emre Arolat, are set to open soon.

Five of Istanbul’s leading chefs, who have been defining modern Turkish cuisine for years, will receive their Michelin stars in 2022, expanding the city’s fine dining scene to international fame. Istanbul is also confronting its past with the Miras (Heritage) project by Istanbul Municipality, which is actively restoring abandoned historical structures, from Ottoman fountains to dilapidated neoclassical apartments.
