A much nicer experience than the super busy Blue Mosque - we visited on a Sunday. It was much quieter than the Sultanahmet and the Mosque itself is stunning. It's quite a steep climb up from the Spice Bazar area. The whole space is very...More

It is indeed a very pretty mosque. Still, it looks like most other mosques and I would not call it spectacular in any sense. Definitely, it is far from the grandness of Hagia Sophia.

Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the
Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in
search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name
jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed
cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow
streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to
the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the
evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside
