If the thought of walking through ancient Mosques, seeing spectacular Ottoman architecture and hearing the call of the muezzin has you thinking about exotic adventures in faraway lands, then a holiday to Turkey is for you.
Start your sightseeing holiday in Istanbul by visiting the Hagia Sophia. Built in the 532, the Hagia Sophia started as an Orthodox Basilica, was changed to a Mosque and stands today as a museum that is considered the ultimate embodiment of Byzantine architecture. Move on over to Topkapi Palace for Ottoman architecture. Topkapi Palace, built in 1459, contains holy Muslim relics such as Mohammed’s Cloak as well as his sword.
Fairy Chimneys, underground cities, souvenir shopping at the Grand Bazaar, enjoying long soaks in a Turkish Bath and visiting the Hippodrome are several more of the exciting attractions that Turkey has to offer.
