West meets East
Istanbul is the city where Emperor Constantine was crowned, and where for a thousand years, the greatest church in the whole of Byzantine Kingdom stood. Later, when the Ottoman Empire flourished, it was converted to a mosque. In modern Turkey, it is a shrine to both religions, and a monument to history. You can see it in the photo above, the magnificent multi layered dome and minarets of the Aya Sofya. This immense building stands on the banks of the Bosporus, and in the country which is still the only land link between South Eastern Europe and Asia. A confluence of cultures, religions and people exist here. Welcome to Turkey.
