Istanbul - A city changing

In modern Istanbul, skyscrapers keep popping up; however, so do the minarets of the mosques. In the streets one can see more women with Islamic dressing walking, making the conservative turn of society obvious enough. Western tourists, being much less than they used to be, are replaced by visitors from Arab countries. Mosques are lighted in a more sophisticated and massive way, while this year’s Ramadan was celebrated in a bigger glory than the past ones. New layers of society are coming to the surface and are slowly switching the city’s nature. Its beauty, though, remains remarkable.
