What You Can Expect

Haghia Sophia
From the Golden Age of Byzantine, this once Christian church is one of the most extraordinary buildings in the history of architecture. It played a very important role in the Byzantine Empire and later as a mosque in the Ottoman Empire. The word "Haqia" in Greek means "Divine" and "Sophia" means "Wisdom". "Divine Wisdom is one of the attributes of Jesus Christ and this church is devoted to his divine wisdom.

areas in Byzantine.
