The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia

It feels like a good day for some photos, so I’m just posting up a storm!

This gallery details my visits to The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, which rest just a couple hundred meters from each other in the area of Sultanahmet in Istanbul. This is the area I posted a few photos of earlier, with lots of tourists and restaurants and hotels. The area is almost park-like with its paths and fountains and splashes of grass. It’s no wonder the neighborhood and the buildings within it are so popular with visitors!

As for these two particular landmarks, both are completely saturated in beauty and history, but to mention every nuance and characteristic would make this post too long, so instead I’ll just link you to their respective Wikipedia pages if you’re interested in learning a little more about each place: The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia.

So read up and take a gander!
