What awaits you

The main thing in Istanbul The tour will begin in one of the oldest corners of the city - the Hippodrome Square, where you will meet artifacts from thousands of years ago from Asia and Europe. You will see three ancient obelisks and one monument of European culture. We will walk to the 16th century palace, see the outside of the palace and talk about its amazing history. And leaving the square, we will enjoy the view of the Blue Mosque - I will tell you what valuable materials were used in its construction. Then we will visit the Basilica Cistern - perhaps the most mystical sight of the city. Twilight, illumination of carved columns, the head of Medusa - you will be imbued with an atmosphere of mystery and hear about the secrets of the Cistern

Also in the program:

  • Majestic Hagia Sophia, where Princess Olga was baptized: you will hear about the fate of the first Byzantine rulers.
  • Orient Express station, described in the famous novel by Agatha Christie - the impression of its decoration will be complemented by a cup of fragrant oriental coffee in the local authentic cafe.
  • The Suleymaniye Mosque is a masterpiece of architecture of the 16th century and the tomb of the famous Suleiman the Magnificent and Khyurrem-Roksolana, whose love story we will also remember.

Spices and spices We will take a lunch break at one of the authentic locations where you can sample local cuisine - I will complement this experience with a story about our traditions and culture. Then we will head to the labyrinths of the Egyptian bazaar: the aromas of oriental spices will tempt you to buy sweets and spices, fragrant tea and coffee. And the walk will end in the city of trade - at the Grand Bazaar, where amazing things are sold, and, it seems, you can even find Aladdin's lamp.
