"Hippodrome Remnants" Hippodrome - Atmaydani Tip by craine

Hippodrome - Atmaydani, Istanbul: 65 reviews and 131 photos

The site of the ancient hippodrome, essentially a racing circuit, is facinating, as some of the objects that were racing around on a large, long oval like track with two sharp corners, are still visible today, such as the Serpentine column among other things.

Address: Sultanahemet
Directions: Near Blue mosque, now called At Meydani because of historic horse racing that occurred here.
