The handsome Blue mosque of Istanbul, also known as the Sultan Ahmet Camii, is a historical mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. The religious place of worship is an iconic landmark of old Istanbul, the capital from where the Byzantine and Ottoman empires ruled.
The great Hagia Sophia standing in the heart of the old city part of Istanbul is one of Turkey’s most celebrated landmarks. As one of the country’s top visited tourist attractions, hundreds of people enter it daily to view relics and architecture of two of the most iconic empires.
When you’re visiting Istanbul, a visit to the Topkapi Palace is a must! The palace is open every day, except Tuesday, from 9 am – 6.45pm. Ticket prices are cheap (only 45 TL for both the palace and the Harem).
The next stop on our tour of Istanbul was the Grand Bazaar. The Grand Bazaar of Istanbul is a lot more than your average shopping mall. Shopkeepers are not shy about letting you know they want your money and will do their best to get it. Sixty streets covered with thousands of shops can be overwhelming if you are not a hardcore shopper.
Most people visiting Istanbul think of the Hippodrome in its current iteration: a large oblong park with a couple of ancient obelisks. However, routine maintenance work in front of the Blue Mosque revealed pieces of the Hippodrome’s true historic nature when seats and statues from the vast stadium were uncovered.
A Bosphorus cruise provides the best way to see Istanbul’s epic architecture along the European and Asian shores of the Bosphorus Strait.

The Eyyub Sultan Mosque is situated outside the Walls of Constantinople, near the Golden Horn, in the district of Eyüp on the European side of İstanbul. Built in 1458, it was the first mosque constructed by the Ottoman Turks following their conquest of Constantinople in 1453
The Süleymaniye Mosque is open to visitors daily and frees to enter. The mosque still functions as a place of worship, not just a tourist attraction, so non-Muslim guests are advised to refrain from visiting when Muslims come here to pray.
