Historical Main Places Around Us!!

Istanbul; the capital of three great empires, the host for the cultures of the communities that have been living in Anatolia for thousands of years, and the city housing the most significant structures of the three major religions. Istanbul, extending to Asia on one side and to Europe on the other, is the only city that lies on two continents in the world. The Bosphorus, passing through the middle of the city guides the waters of the Black Sea, the sea of Marmara and the Golden Horn. Istanbul, known with its museums, churches palaces, mosques, marketplaces and natural beauties, and has also begun to be known with its skyscrapers which are the necessity of modern life, makes its guests feel that it is one of the most famous cities of the world in every breath they take.

Hagia Sophia
Haghia Sophia, built on a hill in the centre of Old Byzantine, has a perfect appearance from the sea. Emperor Justinianus demanded a new curch to be built in a short time after the one before Haghia Sophia had collapsed in 532. Haghia Sophia became the most powerful and respected church of Christianity over 1.000 years. It was considered to symbolize the composition of the imperial thought peculiar to Rome and the understanding of God on Christianity. Haghia Sophia mosque had seen five sultans. It had been the main mosque until turned to be a museum in 1934.

The Topkapi Palace
The famous Ottoman historian Evliya Celebi describes the Topkapi Palace (Topkapi Sarayi) as "the loveliest sultanate palace that human skill could have created." One can not help doing anything but ruling if living in here! If you can come out of this complex game that is made of terraces, corridors, stairs, and interior courts; you find yourself in the world of Arabian Nights again. The palace once Ottoman Sultans lived is visited by thousands of visitors from all parts if the world, is the most splendid monument of Istanbul. The reason Sultan Mehmet chose this place was not only the beauty of the ridges. He was planning to have a residential fortress built where Istanbul could be protected best. A high city wall, extending from Golden Horn as far as the Sea of Marmara, separating Topkapi Palace from the rest of city.

The Blue Mosque
Sultan Ahmet camii is the sign of Istanbul and the favorite of Muslims tourists: It is the biggest mosque of the city with its six minarets and called "The Blue Mosque" because of its decoration. The Blue Mosque built on a high hill at the shore of the Sea of Marmara across Haghia Sophia, has domes that symmetrically widening in all directions with three storeys. The interior of the building is in great unity and simplicity, such as the exterior. The Blue mosque completed in 1616, is the example of the last point the Ottoman architecture reached.
