The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, more commonly called the Blue Mosque, is one of the most popular attractions in Istanbul. The blue tiles that adorn the walls of its interior are what give the mosque its name. This sight is not to be missed when visiting Turkey’s capital city.
Also located in Istanbul, Hagia Sofia was first an Orthodox basilica, then a mosque, and became a museum in 1935. It is said to be the epitome of Byzantine architecture, and many say that it inspired the design of the Blue Mosque.
