Origins of the Ottoman Empire
About 1299, Osman I, a representative of Turkish tribes in Anatolia, established the Ottoman Empire. The word "ottoman" comes from the name of Osman, which in Arabic was "Uthman." The Ottomans were renowned for their artistic, scientific, and medical achievements. Istanbul and other imperial cities were considered artistic destinations during the reign of Suleiman.
Under Osman I, Orhan, Murad I, and Bayezid I, the Ottoman Turks formed formal governance and widened their territory. Sultan Mehmed renamed Istanbul City and made it the next Ottoman Empire capital. Istanbul developed into the world's foremost international trading center and culture.
The majority of tourists travel to Turkey to visit Istanbul. It is home to world-famous buildings such as the Hagia Sophia, Sultan Ahmed Mosque (the Blue Mosque) and shopping centers such as the Grand Bazaar. Istanbul is located in Europe and Asia—a well-known fact that most people are always curious about.
