Why locals love it

The capital of the Eastern Roman Empire was considered as “the origin of all roads” and even as “the center of the Earth”.
The emperor, who came to see the finished artifact, walked towards the altar, raised his hands, thanked to god and said, “Solomon, I have outdone thee!”

Why you should visit it

Hagia Sophia was a Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal basilica (church), later an imperial mosque, and now a museum (Ayasofya Müzesi) in Istanbul, Turkey.

Special tip

Hagia Sophia, one of the historical architectural wonders that still remains standing today, has an important place in the art world...
