Istanbul’s history dates back to about 660 BC, which means there are tons of ancient buildings and mosques to explore. It also served as a capital for both the Roman Empire and Ottoman Empire. Don’t miss the following historical structures:

  • Hagia Sophia – Dedicated in 360 AD as a church, the Hagia Sophia later became a mosque. Since 1943, it has served as a museum. The main draw of this spectacular structure is the grand dome. Its unique design is said to have changed the course of architectural history. Fun fact – the Hagia Sophia was the largest cathedral in the world for about 1,000 years, until the Seville Cathedral was completed in 1520.
  • Topkapi Palace – Residence of the Ottoman emperors for about 400 years, it was eventually converted to a museum. Along the way, each emperor added to the palace, making it a maze of buildings from different eras. Take a close look at the trees in the courtyards, as many of their barks are hollowed out due to a fungus.
  • Sultan Ahmed Mosque (or Blue Mosque) – Many consider this mosque to be the most picturesque of all the sights in Istanbul. Known for its interior blue tiled walls, it was completed in 1616 and adorned with six minarets (towers).
