Highlights with Istanbul Welcome Card
The Byzantine cathedral Hagia Sophia is perhaps the most magnificent sight in Istanbul. It was the largest church in the world for 1000 years, and after Istanbul was conquered by the Ottoman Empire it was converted into a mosque. But all famous Christian relics are well preserved and viewable for today's visitors.
In this magical palace, the Ottoman sultans reigned for 400 years and the legendary harem has its very own history. If you want to learn more about the Ottomans, the visit of Topkapı Palace is a must do thing in Istanbul.
The famous strait Bosphorus not only separates Istanbul into two halves, but also Europe from Asia. Those who did not take part in this boat trip can’t really tell to have been in Istanbul.
The underground cistern supplied water to Constantinople for centuries. The magical location served as a set for many Hollywood movies like James Bond, Inferno etc.
From this old Venetian tower you have a wonderful view over the rooftops of Istanbul.
The Blue Mosque with its six minarets is the most famous mosque in Istanbul and gets its name from the shiny blue tiles with which it is decorated. Sultanahmet is the central square of the "Historic Peninsula".
