SULTAN AHMED MOSQUE (Blue Mosque)
Sultan Ahmed Mosque, known as the Blue Mosque by many tourists because of its bluish interior decoration, is the most important mosque of Istanbul standing next to the Byzantine Hippodrome in the old city center. It was built by the Ottoman sultan Ahmed I between 1609 – 1616.
The Grand Bazaar is renowned as the oldest and largest shopping centre of the world, and it houses 3,600 shops over a 45 thousand square metres (11.2 acres) of covered space. The Grand Bazaar was the hub of Ottoman economy and today it is the first choice for shopping for those visiting Istanbul.
Hagia Sophia is a great architectural beauty and an important monument both for Byzantine and for Ottoman Empires. Once a church, later a mosque, and now a museum at the Turkish Republic.
Bosphorus is a natural strait connecting the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, thus being a very strategic waterway. It was a river in the valley during the Tertiary period of the continents, which was drowned by the sea at the end of this period. Bosphorus strait separates the European part from the Asian part of Istanbul.
Hot Air Balloon
Hot air ballooning in Cappadocia is incredible not only because of the unique and rugged landscape, but also because the balloons fly approximately 250 days of the year. Cappadocia might be the only place in the world where hundreds of balloons fly nearly every single morning, giving you the experience of a lifetime.
The Pigeon Valley earned its name from the countless man-made pigeon houses that have been carved into the soft volcanic tuff. Since ancient times, Pigeons have been used in the Cappadocia region for food and fertiliser.
Pasabag or Monks Valley has the best collection of fairy chimneys in Cappadocia. In this area you can see a few different types of fairy chimneys. The early inhabitants of Cappadocia believed that these were the chimneys for the fairies who lived under the ground.
The amazing underground cities in Cappadocia have become famous all over the world, just as much as the fascinating fairy chimneys. Built to protect the ancient inhabitants, the underground cities allowed thousands of people to live their lives in total secrecy.
