When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. When painting the Historical Peninsula, most of the time foreign artists work as they gaze from the other side of the Golden Horn. The delegation of ambassadors that will be received by the sultan is depicted as it heads towards the Golden Horn. With the Roman and Ottoman monuments in the horizon, the Historical Peninsula is discernable. Additional to its harbor and shipyard, Golden Horn’s bridge accompanied by its water vehicles is one of the best locations to observe the life in this town that is so seamlessly integrated with the sea.
