Basilica Cistern

The Basilica Cistern is in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul, very near to Hagia Sophia. You enter through a small yellow building, completely nondescript save the long line of tourists wrapping around it a few times. After descending a few flights of stairs, you enter the cool, dark rooms supported by forests of columns. Fish swim in the shallow water below, and soft lights create amazing patterns and reflections in the pools. Truly magnificent!
