"Underground" Basilica Cistern - Yerebatan Saray Tip by Dinaelghitany

Very interesting underground cistern with beautiful lighting, and water with fish swimming there. Kids will love finding the fish. At the end, you will see two inverted medusa heads. It is very damp and dark, so once you finish , it is better to leave.

Address: Alemdar Mahallesi, Yerebatan Caddesi, No:1/3, Ista
Directions: In sultanahmet, very near Topkapi & Hagia Sofia
