When I look at Istanbul, I think Constantinople. I'm sorry, but I simply can't take the city seriously. It was build by Roman standards and taken because the Eastern Roman Empire thought that their walls would protect them forever. Arrogance.

I want to know some honest opinions. Do Greeks have a claim on Istanbul? Both the Turks and the Byzantine empire are long gone. Who should rightfully own the city? And could Istanbul be one day renamed Constantinople?

Let's throw in a bit of song while we hurry our thoughts:



What are your thoughts on Constantinople?

It is currently inside the sovereign borders of Turkey....so I guess the Turks win.
For their sake, its a good thing they aren't part of Greece.
