Byzantium, a city founded in the 7th century BC by Greek colonists, played a pivotal role in the course of history. Situated strategically on the Bosporus Strait, it evolved into Constantinople, the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. This vibrant city flourished as a center of culture and Christianity, featuring architectural marvels like the Hagia Sophia. After enduring the rise and fall of empires, including the Fourth Crusade’s devastating sack in 1204, it fell to the Ottoman Empire in 1453. Renamed Istanbul, it continued its legacy, bridging East and West, and remains a dynamic metropolis today, rich in history and cultural heritage.
