The exquisite and great cultural richness of Turkey
One of the most important tourist centers you can see in Turkey is the great and enigmatic city of Istanbul, formerly Constantinople. Today it is the economic and cultural capital of the country.
Among its monuments and traffic spaces is the Grand Bazaar. One of the largest in the world at nearly 4,000 stores, it is presented as the ideal place to buy souvenirs and gifts in the form of jewelry, carpets and silverware.
Istanbul is a city that also boasts an impressive religious artistic heritage. Its greatest exponent, the church of Hagia Sophia, is an imposing construction that was begun in 360 and reflects the passage of history through Istanbul better than any other building. It was Orthodox, Catholic, a cathedral and a mosque, and today it functions as a museum. Topped by an impressive dome and several minarets, its luxurious interior will intoxicate your senses.
In a predominantly Muslim country such as Turkey, the presence of mosques is very large. Among the most important is the Blue Mosque. In front of the Hagia Sophia, it owes its name to its interior which is filled with blue mosaics. These provide a perfect contrast to the rest of the surroundings.
