"Aya Sofia" Naval Museum Tip by viajera67

Naval Museum, Istanbul: 10 reviews and 24 photos

I read that the was built back in the 6th century AD as a church, was later converted (rather brutally) to a mosque, and then transformed to a museum by Attaturk. It's huge and beautiful; I can't imagine how they were able to build it back then!
