Istanbul's Old City surrounding Sultanahmet is rich in ancient architecture which includes the famous Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Once known as Constantinople - the capital of the Byzantine, Istanbul was centered historically around Sultanahmet. Istanbul's historical architectures are deeply influenced by the Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires,which all, at some point in history, controlled Constantinople, thus the architectural designs are diverse and are deeply seeded in history.

The attractions in the Old City are located at a walking distance from each other and can be conveniently accessed in a day trip though you should be speedy in arriving early to avoid the crowds.

This short video introduces Divan Yolu, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, the Hippodrome, Kucuk Ayasofya Mosque, Gülhane Park, Arasta Bazaar as well as Star Holiday Hotel which I stayed at. I hope you enjoy this experience through history.

Thank you for watching.
