Istanbul is a magnificently unique city with it`s oriental fantasy skyline of domes and minarets and endless mazes of trinket stalls, jewellery shops, tailors and spice merchants in the old quarters. No wonder Ian Fleming, the author behind the James Bond series, considered it to be one of his favourite cities. The Grand Bazaar is the beating heart of Istanbul and the perfect backdrop for the opening scene in the latest James Bond movie «Skyfall». The old quarter and several other iconic Istanbul locations have all been showcased in Bond films. Explore the city in the footsteps of 007 and visit the locations where some of the Bond scenes were filmed.
