Full description

St.Sophia has been the largest cathedral in the world for nearly a thousand years. It is considered the masterpiece of Byzantine architecture. After being the patriarchal basilica of Constantinople, it was converted into a mosque in 1453 by Sultan Mehmet II. the conqueror and in a museum of Atataürk in 1935.

Explore the Blue Mosque, which overlooks Hagia Sophia, famous for its blue Iznik tiles and uniquely decorated with 6 minarets built in the name of Sultan Ahmet. The name of the last major imperial mosque in the classics comes from the 20,000 beautiful blue-tinted Iznik tiles that adorn the interior walls.

Discover the Hippodrome, center for sporting (chariot racing, athletics) and political activities of the old town. Obelisk of Theodosius, serpentine column, German fountain of Wilhelm II. Are the monuments that adorn the Hippodrome.
