Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge Tours

Istanbul is often referred to as the city where east meets west due to its bordering of two different continents, Asia and Europe. This sentiment is literally true when it comes to the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. Located over the Bosphorus Strait in Istanbul, one end of Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge is rooted in Europe while the other end sits in Asia. Residents of Istanbul who use Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge as their daily commute don't think twice about residing on one continent while working in another, but visitors to Istanbul will likely find it to be quite the novelty and will enjoy a drive across the bridge.

Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge was built in 1988 and is one of the longest steel suspension bridges in the world. It is named after Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror who took control of Constantinople from the Byzantine Empire in the 15th century, though the bridge is also commonly referred to as the Second Bosphorus Bridge. (The Bosphorus Bridge – considered to be the First Bosphorus Bridge – is located farther south along the Bosphorus Strait).

Practical Info

The Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge is part of the O-2 highway in Istanbul. If driving from the Europe side to the Asia side of the bridge you’ll need to pay a toll.
