Hippodrome was used for entertaining people during Roman and Byzantine Period. It was an ancient racetrack where the historical chariot races, major social events and athletic competitions were arranged. But aslo It was the place where the people can find a chance to speak with their leaders. Sometimes they celebrated victories sometimes they created riots in this special place.
It is the most well known mosque with its beautiful blue ceramic tiles in Istanbul. When you enter the mosque you will see the beauty of Ottoman Art. Amazing Caligraphies on the ceiling and soft feeling of the carpet will relax you.
This is the highlight of the tour. It will amaze you with its huge dome and beautiful mosaics.Still standing after 1500 years in the same place.It was built as chuch,and used as a mosque then it was a museum.It became mosque last year again. It is an architecture miracle of its time but I think the stories of Hagia Sophia make it better. Combination of religious art figures will surprize you.
Topkapi Palace was the residence of the Ottoman Sultans. They lived in this big palace around 400 years. We have many palaces in Istanbul but this palace is special with its architectural style and its location is in the best place of the city. You can see three parts of Istanbul from ıts courtyards.
