Discover the 8th wonder of the world with a ticket to the spectacular Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
Hagia Sophia, the epitome of Byzantine architecture, has changed hands once or twice during its lifetime. It was a Greek Orthodox cathedral, an Ottoman mosque and now it is a secular museum - but it preserves beautiful parts of its various spiritual incarnations.
If you have time for only one cultural feature in Istanbul, then it should be the Hagia Sophia that you visit. This towering masterpiece of Byzantine architecture is truly one of the most breathtaking buildings in the world.
After you've finished marvelling at the striking exterior of the Hagia, set out to prepare yourself that you won't be able to get out of it! The dimension of art and architecture inside is something that needs to be experienced firsthand in order to be believed.
Marvel at a beautiful blend of Christian and Islamic aesthetics and enjoy a fantastic view of the dome - which seems to float above the ceiling. The effect is caused by a window ring along the bast of the dome, which surrounds the entire nave with light.
This is the most impressive sight in Turkey that every culture lover must see at least once in his life.
