      Thank you, Corra! Yes, in my opinion Hagia Sophia is among the most magnificent churches in the world!

    As the previous poster says, this is a massive page on Istanbul. I had the opportunity to visit this vibrant city in late sixties during a Med. cruise. I still remember the Blue Mosque and of course the Grand Bazaar. I still have a charm I bought there.

    Sergey, what a massive page with brilliant photos and interesting commentaries about Istanbul. I especially like your practical transportation tips. Istanbul is one of the few European capital cities which I haven't visited yet.
