Memorial Sisli Hospital is located on the traditionally European side of Istanbul. The closest airport, Istanbul Ataturk International Airport, is less than a 20-minute drive from the hospital. Istanbul is the only city in the world that sits on two continents: Europe and Asia. The city lies on both sides of the Bosporus channel and the Sea of Marmara, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. Bridging two continents, Istanbul is a melting pot and its rich and diverse cultural heritage is visible in its art, architecture, and food. There are many attractions within easy reach of Memorial Sisli Hospital such as Topkapi Palace, which was the official residence of the Ottoman Sultans for around four centuries. A visit to Istanbul also wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the bazaars.
