Istanbul's conquest celebrated with a bang!

The 558th anniversary of Istanbul’s conquest was celebrated with a laser, light and water show in the Golden Horn on Sunday.

The celebration started with voice and light shows before continuing with a movie, “The Conquest of Istanbul,” which was projected on a water curtain.

The show took place on a platform made especially for the conquest celebration in Balat. The show included Mehter musicians from Janissary bands re-enacting the conquest and Mehmed the Conqueror’s entrance into the city.

The event concluded with a firework, light and laser show.
