Top Landmarks in Sultanahmet, Istanbul

Sultanahmet Square is one of the oldest places in Istanbul. Sultanahmet Square, one of the seven hills of Istanbul, is among the most important squares of Istanbul with its atmosphere reflecting both history and cultural tourism.

There are many artifacts from the empire in Istanbul, which has been the capital of Byzantine for many years. Rare and unique works built in Istanbul, which was later conquered by the Ottomans in 1453, enabled a richer heritage to survive.

You can reach the cultural satisfaction point in Sultanahmet Square, where different historical places such as mosques, madrasahs, inns, markets, and churches are on the list of places to visit.

The first places that come to mind around Sultanahmet are Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia Museum, Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque), Basilica Cistern, Çemberlitaş, Aya Irini, Istanbul Archeology Museum, Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum, Theodosius Obelisk, and Grand Bazaar.
