The city of Istanbul spans the graticules of 41,28 and 41,29, as well as the continents of Europe and Asia. It used to be the capital until it moved to Ankara in the 1920s, but it's still the largest city in Turkey.

There's lots of water, but that's alright, since mass transit goes everywhere and the city has so many graticules close by. As for the land, the concrete jungle seems to be everywhere at first glance, but there's actually lots of small patches of green that the urban sprawl forgot: The trouble is getting there, and that's where we come in!

Fun fact: There is actually a tiny patch of land in the northwest corner of the west graticule which belongs to Bulgaria, so we also span borders. And speaking of bits of land, some third of the city lies in the two southern graticules, but they were not included in this page as that was deemed more accurate.

Land usage for Rumeli:

85.75%  Water
12.23%  Settlements
1.11%   Roads
0.43%   Intercity Highways
0.28%   Industrial
0.20%   Highways
