Turkey is an impressive country, that deserves to be seen at least once in a lifetime by every single person. We recommend to you Istanbul, a significant and representative city that you will not be able to forget.

  • St. Sophie. The person that took over this project was Constantin the Great and its aim was to show the strength and the power of the leaders in the Roman Empire. There was a moment when this was the biggest Christian Church in the world.
  • The Blue Mosque. You can find it under the name of Sultanahmet Camii. Due to the outstanding decorations of blue tiles of iznik and the turbe of the outside, this building definitely deserves to be seen and its history will also leave you speechless.
  • Hippodrome. This has a powerful sense and a cultural sign of the Roman Empire. There are three important remains that you might like to see: the Obelisk of Theodosius, the bronze Serpentine Column and the Column of Constantine.
