The splash of the fountain is fantastic and artistic. Good place to take photos. The fountain looks like some kind of phantasmagoria in the evening. 噴水が勢いよく吹き上げられて芸術的です。客引きが来るのでゆっくりできないことが多いのが残念です。ちなみに噴水の高さ、どこから見てもブルーモスクのミナレットを超えないように計算されています。

This beautiful fountain makes for a relaxing stop and rest during the day; at night, it is spectacular with its coloured lights and overlooked by the Blue Mosque.

A beautiful fountain that is set between lots of historical buildings and sights. Overlooking the fountain you can see the magnificent Blue Mosque.

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
