Most Impressive Hagia Sophia, Istanbul

Share/Bookmark

The Church of the Holy Wisdom, known as Hagia Sophia is a former Byzantine church and former Ottoman mosque in Istanbul. Now a museum, Hagia Sophia is universally acknowledged as one of the great buildings of the world. It contains two floors centered on a giant nave that has a great dome ceiling, along with smaller domes, towering above. Its wide, flat dome was a daring engineering feat in the 6th century, and architects still marvel at the building’s many innovations. It is the most-visited site in Turkey (3.57 million visitors in 2014).
