Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul Golden Horn is located on the shores of the Golden Horn on the historic peninsula. Bosphorus, a big slice of sea that runs through Istanbul connecting Europe to Asia extends further into the land as a canal that makes up the Golden Horn which commands the city that has been home to three empires emerging on the shores of this waterway; Byzantium, Roman and Ottoman. Layers of the history that make İstanbul what it stands for today; the vibrant and diverse mix of enriching cultures mingling together.

Golden Horn strait represent a lifestyle of enlightenment since the Ottoman times. 18th century, a time known as the Tulip Era was when pavilions along its airy shores emerged, little wooden ferries shuttled back and forth while fishing parties were held under moonlight.
