A visit to Istanbul is incomplete without a jaunt to the Old City or sultanahmet istanbul, which was once the social and political centre of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. The neighbourhood of sultanahmet gives you a glimpse into the heart of Istanbul history and some of its most magnificent architecture – all located within walking distance of the Sultanahmet Square as its shown in sultanahmet istanbul map. The 6th-century majestic Hagia Sophia dominates the skyline of Sultanahmet, and is easily recognisable from its vast dome, colourful marble columns, Islamic art and glittering Christian mosaics.
The Sultanahmet district is the heart of historic Old Istanbul, what 19th-century travelers used to call “Stamboul.” The sultanahmet in Istanbul is where you will find Topkapı Palace, Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia), the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii), the ByzantineHippodrome, Basilica Cistern (Yerebatan Saray), Binbirdirek Cistern, the Istanbul Archeological Museums, Great Palace Mosaic Museum, and several lesser sights (see sultanahmet istanbul map).
