What awaits you
Sultans, mosques and vibrant streets The excursion will begin at Sultanahmet Square: here we will admire the beauty of the Blue Mosque and discuss how the famous Hagia Sophia was built (as many as three times!). Let's go to the Hippodrome - another visiting card of the city - and imagine how the battles and chariot races took place. You will visit the Basilica Cistern and reveal its history, walk through the Чemberlitas and Eminonu districts. We will also visit the Suleymaniye Mosque and remember the famous love story of Sultan Suleiman and his Roksolana
Colors of Istanbul Passing through Gulhane Park - in the same way sultans walked here in the past - let's talk about the Tulip Festival and the flower that has become one of the symbols of the country. I propose to take a look at the station Sirkeci, from where the "Orient Express" once departed, and appreciate its decoration. And then go to the Egyptian market: I will show you the stalls where the locals are bought and help you navigate the world of spices. Finally, we will come to the bright Istiklal Street, which is announced by the ringing of a red historic tram. Here you can feel the pulse of Istanbul - and also hear about the white emigration.
