Rumeli Hisarı

Mehmed the Conqueror’s largely symbolic gesture isolating the Byzantine capital from the Black Sea, but a superb piece of architecture all the same. The ruin is open to the public, and concerts are regularly held in summer, but for a sense of what the Bosphorus used to be like from tip to toe, take the energetic walk round the back, climbing the steep lane above the cemetery (calling in on Aşıyan on the way), past the entrance to Boğazici University, and on back through the village itself.
