"The Gap Between Two Titans" Sultanahmet - Old City Tip by mrclay2000
Sultanahmet - Old City, Istanbul: 31 reviews and 61 photos
Not until Sultanahmet was built in the 17th century could any structure rival St Sophia on the First Hill. No tower of Topkapi Palace should even be considered in the same breath. Now the skyline of the First Hill is dominated by ten minarets, the four on St Sophia and the six on the Blue Mosque. These magnificent structures are divided today by a small park with benches, walks and fountains displaying various patterns.
Directions: First Hill
