"A Closer View of Holy Wisdom" Hagia Sophia - Ayia Sofia - Ayasofya Tip by mrclay2000

  St Sophia from the "park"
by mrclay2000

But I find we are moving in the wrong direction. The park dividing these two structures sometimes looks like a landscaping project, sometimes a furrowed field, and sometimes a quaint retreat. If you're sitting here you might be able to enjoy the view of either mosque or museum, and contemplate how the dome of St Sophia has stayed up for so many centuries.
