Hagia Sophia

One of the most precious jewels of the World Heritage… also called as “the eighth wonder of the world”. Sits proudly in the center of the old city for almost 1700 years, expecting from the visitors to admire its greatness!!! It was built in 537,dedicated to the Wisdom of God and it was a Christian church for over 900 years…until the conquest of Istanbul by Fatih Sultan Mehmed in 1453. Hagia Sophia is an amazing architectural sample of Byzantium Era. In 1935, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk converted it into a museum

Blue Mosque

This imposingly beautiful mosque is a 400 year old Cami that dominates the sky of Istanbul! It was built over the site of the ancient Hippodrome, between 1609-1616, for Sultan Ahmet and took its name because of its amazing blue-tiled interior. Blue Mosque is one of the two mosques in Turkey with six minarets! Besides of being a tourist attraction, it is also an active mosque which closes its door five times a day

Hippodrome of Constantinople

The Hippodrome of Constantinople was a public entertainment space intended for horse and chariot racings while gaining at the same time institutional and political dimensions. Its capacity was estimated to reach 100,000 viewers, while the total length was about 450 meters! Currently an elongated public garden, with many remains of the Hippodrome to remind us its greatness…

Cafer Aga Medresseh

A beautiful small place hidden in the shadow of Hagia Sophia. It was build in 1560, as a school, designed by Sinan on the orders of Cafer Ağa. Nowadays it hosts a cultural organisation for teaching and promoting traditional Turkish handicraft! Madrasa provides over 12 handicraft courses such as the popular art of marbling, painting, jewelery, porcelain, calligraphy, Ottoman language, ceramic and stained glass
