It offers a different beauty each season, and in spring it is adorned with the pink flowers of the Judas trees. The settlements along the Bosphorus include some imperial palaces, the mansions of the wealthy and embassies' summer residences. The Bosphorus is a paradise for fish which are caught during the migration seasons. There are numerous fish restaurants and cafes on both sides of the Bosphorus. There are two bridges on the strait.In mythology Jason and Argonauts sailed through the Bosphorus to the Black Sea.
