    Sirkeci and the Orient Express

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Stefano Sarao loved the timelessness of Sirkeci Station in Istanbul.

    "My first time in Turkey was in 1972 and I've been back many times over the past 40 years," Sarao said. "I've seen the country and the people change but Istanbul will always be a magic place to visit and its landmarks a constant reminder of our shared history."
    - Alyssa Jackson, CNN iReport producer

    Istanbul's Sirkeci Station is located just a short walk away from the ferry wharf at Eminönü. Sirkeci was the eastern terminus of the famed Orient Express, which had connected Paris to Istanbul since 1883. The last Orient Express train between France and Turkey ran in 1977.
