Top Tourist Spots

Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) Mosque: When the Byzantine Emperor Justinian entered his completed church for the first time in CE 536, it is stated that he screamed out “God bless you for deeming me worthy of such a task. I have outdone you, Solomon!”

The Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya in Turkish) was the emperor’s brazen declaration to the world of his empire’s wealth and technological prowess.

The official center of the globe, according to legend, was the area surrounding the emperor’s seat within the church.

Topkapı Palace (Topkapı Sarayı): This magnificent palace beside the Bosphorus, erected by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century, was where the Ottoman Empire’s sultans lived and ruled.

The immense complex is a magnificent showcase of Islamic art, with luxurious courtyards adorned with elaborate hand-painted tilework connecting a maze of lavishly decorated chambers, all surrounded by battlemented walls and towers.

The Harem complex (where the sultan’s many concubines and children would spend their days), the Second Court (where you can walk through the vast palace kitchens and gaze in awe at the dazzling interior of the Imperial Council Chamber), and the Third Court (which contained the sultan’s private rooms) are among the most popular attractions here.

Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Cami): This majestic mosque, now known as the Blue Mosque, was Sultan Ahmet I’s grand architectural gift to his capital.

The mosque, which was built between 1609 and 1616 and featured six minarets, generated a stir throughout the Muslim world when it was completed (the same number as the Great Mosque of Mecca). To quell the uproar, Mecca was eventually given a seventh minaret.

The inside of the mosque is decorated with tens of thousands of Iznik tiles, earning it the nickname “Iznik Mosque.”

Basilica Cistern (Yerebatan Sarnıçı): One of Istanbul’s most surprise tourist attractions is the Basilica Cistern. The imperial water supply for the Byzantine emperors was previously housed in this massive, palace-like underground chamber, which was supported by 336 columns in 12 rows.

Constantine the Great started the project, but Emperor Justinian completed it in the sixth century. Many of the columns in the building were repurposed from earlier classical structures and have ornate decorations.

The Medusa stones, or column bases, in the northwest corner are the most famous, with their Medusa head sculptures. The columns are wonderfully lighted, and there is a slow, constant trickle of water all around you, making for a very evocative visit.

Hippodrome: Septimius Severus started building the Hippodrome in CE 203, and Constantine the Great finished it in CE 330. This was the epicenter of Byzantine public life, with magnificent events and chariot racing, as well as factional rivalries.

Except for a little section of the gallery walls on the southern side, there isn’t much of the Hippodrome remaining to view today, but the At Meydan (park) that presently lies on the site is home to a number of monuments. A fountain on the northwest side was given to the Ottoman sultan by German Emperor William II in 1898.
