"Historical Mix" Hippodrome - Atmaydani Tip by Huks

Hippodrome - Atmaydani, Istanbul: 65 reviews and 128 photos

  Hippodrome of Constantinople
by Huks

Hippodrome of Constantinople is very ancient place. Today it isn't more than place for walking but some time ago there was chariot racing.
There are various monuments from Roman empire: Serpent Column, Obelisk of Thutmose III, Walled Obelisk, Statues of Porphyrios.
I would like to see Serpent Column renewed, but otherwise this is good place before entering to Blue Mosque.

Address: Sultanahemet
Directions: Sultanahmet
