Colourfully illuminated at night, this suspension bridge crosses the Bosphorus and connects Europe and Asia. It was opened in 1973.

On 15 July 2016, a group of Turkish soldiers blocked the bridge during the failed coup attempt. Ten days later, the PM proposed that the bridge should be renamed as the 15 July Martyrs Bridge in order to commemorate the event.
