The legend of the foundation of Istanbul is derived from classical mythology: Zeus fell in love with Io, the daughter of Inachus, King of the City of Argos and God of the River of Argos. The King of the Gods temporarily transformed the girl into a heifer in order to protect her from the wrath of his wife, Hera, Queen of the Gods. In her wanderings Io crossed the Bosphorus, giving the strait its name (”boos-foros”,”cow-ford”). While you are on a Bosphorus boat tour Istanbul, to see Io swimming from the Asian side to the European is not possible. But in a lucky day you may see the dolphins swimming along with your boat.

What we know about Agatha Christie is that she came here and most probably she completed ‘Orient Express’ there, too. Rumors also say she used to have a Turkish lover.
