View from Ortaköy (Europe) in southeastern direction to Asia. The first crossing of Bosphorus, with a main span of 1074 m, was completed in 1973. Its official name is 15 July Martyrs Bridge. Four more Bosphorus crossings (bridges and tunnels for road and railway) have been completed by 2017 to ease the inter-continental traffic.
