Trips to Istanbul for Religious Studies Students

The two sides of Istanbul make a great destination for a cultural field trip. There is a fluid transition between a millennia of history and the new hip, chic side of the city. It is very much a European city with its cafes, malls and boulevards but look closer and the bazaar, street hawkers and the bartering way of life swiftly remind you the East really does meet West.
