Bosphorus Bridge Nightly Light Show

Light show, LEDs, Lighting, Istanbul, Turkey, BosphorusLight show, LEDs, Lighting, Istanbul, Turkey, BosphorusWhen we were in Istanbul last month we spotted the Bosphorus Bridge on multiple occasions, usually during the day. One night, however, we passed and witnessed a sort of LED light show with changing colors and animation. We wondered if it was a Ramadan-related occasion or some other special event, but as it turns out it’s more of a we-just-like-our-bridge nightly event.

Built in 1973 and linking Europe to Asia, the 1500 meter bridge has been illuminated at night since 2007. It’s a pretty impressive show. Watch it in action in the video below. The light show begins midway into the video.
