- Hagia Sophia is Istanbul’s most renowned landmark. Built by Byzantine Emperor Justinian I in 537 as a Christian basilica and was the focal point of the Eastern Orthodox Church for almost a millennium. Following the fall of – then named – Constantinople in 1453, Hagia Sophia was converted into a mosque. After being closed to the public for four years, it was reopened in 1935 as a museum.
- The Topkapi Palace, once the primary residence of the Ottoman sultans, is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985 and now houses a museum dedicated to the imperial era of Istanbul.
- Another fine example of Ottoman and Byzantine architecture, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also known as the Blue Mosque due to the blue tiles covering the interior walls, this is the last grand mosque of the classical era.
