“Hagia Sophia (/ˈhɑːɡiə soʊˈfiːə/; from the Greek 'Αγία Σοφία, pronounced [haˈʝia soˈfia], "Holy Wisdom"; Latin: Sancta Sophia or Sancta Sapientia; Turkish: Ayasofya) is the former Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal cathedral, later an Ottoman imperial mosque and now a museum (Ayasofya Müzesi) in Istanbul, Turkey.

It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have "changed the history of architecture".”
“This spot is a "must-visit" if you are fond of history and museums. If you have been to Turkey before, you probably know how Ataturk is valued and commemorated in the country as a founding leader. This palace is where he spent some of his time in Istanbul and where he also passed away in 1938. Right now, it is a museum and open to visitors with guided tours that explain how the Palace was used and how its interior design and furniture came to be the way it is today. After the tour, you can enjoy the view of Bosporus in the palace garden. ”
“Topkapi Palace is located on a beautiful edge of Fatih area next to Bosphorus Strait. It was built in the 15th century to replace the old palace and became the new headquarters for the Ottoman Imperial family and leaders. In 1985, the palace has been declared as one of the world heritage sites by UNESCO and today it is open as a museum for visitors. Although the palace has hundreds of rooms, many of them are not open to public but you can still see the most important areas such as the Harem, treasury room and more including the collections from the history of the Empire.”
