Built by the Byzantine Emperor, Anastasius, the Galata Kulesi (Tower) has been standing in Istanbul since 509. Originally constructed out of wood, this nine-story structure was called the Light House Tower. The most historical mention of Galata is the first man to fly using artificial wings. A man leaped from the Galata Tower and flew into the city of Uskudar in the 17th century. This amazing structure has stood the test of time, survived wars, and resisted fires.
