iz sürmeyi biliyorsanız bu şehir size çok şey vadediyor demektir.. bu vaatlerden faydalanmak içinse çenenize güveniyor olmanız lazım elbette.. bu gördüğünüz de artık tahmin edeceğiniz üzere bir bizans sarnıcı.. ancak günümüzde kıztaşı (markianos sütunu) yakınlarındaki kambur mustafa paşa camii'nin kadınlar bölümü olarak kullanılmakta.. orijinal zemin yüksekliğini üçüncü fotoğraftan anlayabilirsiniz.. sonradan doldurulmuş yani.. erken bizans dönemine tarihlenen bu iyi korunmuş sarnıcın ilgi çekici özelliği ise sokak seviyesinde olması.. 4. fotoğrafta gördüğünüz duvar buranın dışı.. işim bitince ışıkları söndürdüm, kapıyı kilitleyip çıktım.. tüm cami bekçileri ve görevlilerini, han çaycılarını, hâlden anlayan yumuşak başlı yardımsever insanları çok seviyorum bir de :) #kamburmustafacamii #iskenderpaşa #kıztaşı #cistern #sarnıç #byzantinecistern #byzantinearchitecture #byzantine #byzantineempire #constantinople #yeraltı #underground

Jul 18, 2019

Byzanz und das 6. Jahrhundert Alltagskultur, Hinterlassenschaft und Veränderung - Aufbruch und Umbruch im Reich der Römer. Ereignisse wie der Niedergang des Weströmischen Reiches sowie die Übernahme Italiens durch die Goten prägten das 5. nachchristliche Jahrhundert, doch bildete dieses Fanal zugleich Raum für die Emanzipation des östlichen Teils des Imperiums. Unterlagen die einzelnen Phasen im Reich der Römer zu allen Zeiten einem stetigen Wandel, so sind die eigenwilligen und faszinierend schönen kulturellen Überlieferungen des Byzantinischen Reichs unerreicht, in denen das christliche Leben von zentraler Bedeutung erscheint. Nirgendwo entfaltete Byzanz größeren Glanz als in der Kunst. Damit verband das Reich römisches Erbe mit dem Christentum, aber auch mit dem antiken griechischen Schrifttum. Auch in militärischer Hinsicht verharrte Ostrom nicht in Agonie. Allein das Programm Kaiser Justinians zur Rückeroberung ehemals römischer Gebiete im Westen, konnte dem Reich noch einmal zu alter Blüte verhelfen und in kultureller Hinsicht an die Ästhetik vergangener Jahrhunderte anknüpfen. Wie wirkten sich die äußeren Einflüsse auf die Städte und Inseln des Oströmischen Reichs in dieser Zeit aus, welche Bauwerke wurden in jenen Jahren errichtet, welche Kunstwerke für die Ewigkeit angefertigt und wie veränderte sich die Alltagskultur und das Leben der Menschen in dieser Epoche? Die äußere Gestalt der Reichswerdung in der Phase des Umbruchs und einer raschen Veränderung soll dem Leser anhand vieler Farbfotos zu Ausgrabungen und Exponaten verschiedener Museen rund um das Mittelmeer näher gebracht werden. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #qualitytime #byzantineempire #Byzanz #iloveart #romanculture #book #mybooks #buch #bücher #literatur #bookstagram #buchblogger #bücherwurm #romanempire #ravenna #meinbuch #kunst #autor #schriftsteller #buchempfehlung #sommer #latein #schreiben #lesen #instagramwife #bookphotography #Legion #author #Art #Kultur

This Medieval Roman Empire, today called the Byzantine Empire, began when Constantine, the first Christian emperor, moved Rome's capital. . ⁣ . ⁣ .⁣ . ⁣ #TEDEd #TEDEdAnimation #animation #animations #animationart #characteranimation #illustration #illustrations #2danimation #motiondesign #traditionalanimation #characterdesign #animatorsoninstagram #ByzantineEmpire #remusandkiki

Jul 16, 2019

EN: Mosaic of Justinian I from Basilica di San Apollinare Nuovo in Ravenna. It was probably an overlay of the mosaic of Theodoric, Ostrogothic king. San Apollinare Nuovo was built as an Arian church of Theodoric’s palace in 505 AD. After Justinian’s reconquest of Italian peninsula, the church was transferred to orthodox use and the mosaic has been adapted to glorification of Justinian. The portrait of Justinian is not a reliable depiction of him, rather it is an example of using of art works for political purposes. ————————————————— TR: Ravenna’daki Yeni Aziz Apollinare Bazilikası’nda bulunan İmparator Jüstinyen mozaiği. Muhtemelen aynı yerde bulunan Ostrogot kralı Teoderik’in mozaiği yerine yapılmıştır. Aryan kilisesi olarak inşa edilen bazilika, Teoderik’in Ravenna’daki sarayının şapeli olarak 505 yılında yapılmıştır. Jüstinyen’in İtalyan Yarımadası’nı tekrar fethetmesinin ardından ortodoks kilisesine çevrilen bazilikadaki mozaik, Jüstinyen’in zaferine uygun olarak değiştirilmiştir. Jüstinyen’in portresi değiştirildiği için güvenilir bir tasvirden uzaktır ve sanat eserlerinin politik nedenlerle kullanılışına bir örnektir. #art #arthistory #historyofart #kunst #kunstgeschichte #sanat #sanattarihi #theodoric #ravenna #justinian #goths #ostrogoths #italy #italia #italya #italien #mosaic #mosaicart #basilicadisanapollinarenuovo #sanapollinarenuovo #byzantineempire #byzantineart #byzantinehistory #bizanssanatı #bizanstarihi #bizansimparatorluğu #lateantiquity #earlymedieval #arianchurch

Jul 16, 2019

This is a digital reconstruction of The Forum of Constantine, which was built at the foundation of Constantinople, immediately outside the old city walls of Byzantium (present-day Istanbul). It marked the centre of the new city, and was a central point along the Mese, the main ceremonial road through the city. - The Forum of Constantine was circular and had two monumental gates to the east and west. The Column of Constantine, which still stands upright and is known today in Turkish as Çemberlitaş, was erected in the centre of the square. It is made of nine drums of Egyptian porphyry which were brought there from Rome. The column was originally crowned with a statue of Constantine I as Apollo, but a strong gale in 1150 caused the statue and three of the column's upper drums to fall, and a cross was added in its place by the Byzantine emperor Manuel I Komnenos (r. 1143-1180). Otherwise the forum remained nearly intact until the Fourth Crusade in 1203-1204. The city's first Senate House lay on the north side of it. We know from the sources that the square was decorated with a number of antique statues. The Forum suffered major damage in a fire started by soldiers of the Fourth Crusade in 1203. After the Sack of 1204, the antique statues decorating the Forum were melted down by the Crusaders. The city's holy sanctuaries were systematically violated. Everything they could lay their hands on was destroyed or stolen; nothing was spared, not even the tombs of the emperors inside the St Apostles church. During these raids, the Venetians stole religious relics and works of art, which they would later take to Venice to adorn their own churches. The famous bronze horses from the Hippodrome were sent back to adorn the façade of St Mark's Basilica in Venice. - The sack weakened the Byzantine Empire, which allowed neighboring groups such as the Sultanate of Rum, and later the Ottoman Turks, to gain influence.

Jul 15, 2019

Lose yourself in the history of Istanbul and Turkey. Learn more about how it was the 3rd most desired city in the world after Jerusalem and Rome and why everyone was eyeing it. Travel with its past from it being the capital of Eastern Roman empire popularly known as Constantinople to it being the harbinger of the rise of one of the greatest empires in all times, the Ottomans and how it finally turned to secular state adopting the positives of western culture yet retaining its roots, Istanbul's history will leave you awestruck. Highly recommended is the walking tour of old city by Free Istanbul Tours' guide Emre. His knowledge is not limited to books and he is great at building context. His liberal and honest views makes the conversation more interesting. He is all over on tripadvisor with amazing reviews. Catch hold of him whenever you visit Istanbul. The Hippodrome area in Sultanamhet square is shown in the pictures. It was adorned by the obelisk from Egypt from 1490 BC and the other obelisk that was built by Constantine VII in 10th century. #walkingtouristanbul #oldcitywalkingtour #istanbul #historyofturkey #historyofistanbul #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetturkey #lpfanphoto #culture #heritage #constantinople #ottomanempire #byzantineempire #easternromanempire #mehmattheconquerer #travelandexplore #travellenottourism #traveljunkies #instatravel #travelbloggers #indiantraveller #travelblog #traveltales #turkeytravels #turkeytourism #freeistanbultours

New: Twenty Battles that Shaped Medieval Europe by Georgios Theotokis. Warfare has been central to European history for millennia; Twenty Battles that Shaped Medieval Europe examines the strategy, military and equipment and battle-tactics of European armies in the Middle Ages. Its fundamental aim is to stimulate the reader's interest in the importance of pitched battles in war, and to explain the geo-political gravity of twenty of them from the Battle of Frigidus in AD394 to the Battle of Varna in 1444, taking in such key battles as Hastings in 1066 and Bouvines in 1214. #medieval #medievaleurope #medievalbattles #battleofhastings #battleofbouvines #battleofvarna #byzantineempire #militarytactics #crowoodpress #middleages

Jul 13, 2019

#🇹🇷 Istanbul Series #2 The basilica cistern is something no one should miss when in Istanbul. It is located close to Hagia Sophia and it is named after the ancient public square, the Stoa Basilica, under which it is built. Byzantine emperor Constantine and later emperor Justinian were the ones in power during its construction, which aimed to support water supply in the city. Historic rumors say it took 7000 slaves to built it. In Turkish its called Yerebatan Saray (underground palace) or Yerebatan Sarnıcı (Underground cistern). 🔻🔻🔻🔻 Walking down to it, the air becomes thick and moldy, but the view is stunning! There are 336 pillars with intricate designs, two of which are famous for been secured on huge rocks with Medusa's head carved on them (unfortunately, back then I had no iPhone, but only a humble Nikon and these pics are lousy). 🔻🔻🔻 All of the columns are illuminated in a way that makes the place look mystical and a little creepy. I felt like walking to the underworld and Charon would greed me around the corner on a boat. But it's good creepy. 🔻🔻 Nowadays there is a small coffee restaurant there and classical music concerts are organized! Oh there are also fish.. 🔻 #istanbul #basilicacistern #yerebatansarayi #yerebatansarnıcı #υδραγωγείο #underworld #hades #whereistheboatman #charon #water #ancientsite #κωνσταντινουπολη #historyclass #byzantineempire #turkey #🌍 #undergroundfish #istanbulturkey #istanbulphotos #istanbulphotography #travel #travelphotography #tourist #touristphotography #🐟 #🐠 #thestrangetraveler

Ancient Bronze Medieval Christian Byzantine Reliquary Cross Crucifix from circa 800 - 1200 A.D. 4.9 x 2.0 x 0.5 centimeters (14.34 grams) in front has the depiction of Jesus Christ and the reverse has Virgin Mary. . . . Note: Reliquary crosses are considered to have contained parts of saints or Holy cross. (also referred to as a shrine or by the French term chasse) is a container for relics. These may be the purported physical remains of saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or some object associated with saints or religious figures. The use of reliquary crosses became an important part of Christianity from at least the 4th century.

Jul 11, 2019

Aya Sofia, Currently a museum, it was commissioned as a church in the Byzantine Era in 500s and then converted to a mosque by Ottomans in 1400s, finally converted to a museum by Ataturk ( father of the nation, Turkey) in 1935. The architecture and the structure of the edifice has evolved from Byzantine era to Ottoman era and now the architecture is majorly Ottoman. This magnificent structure has evident symbols of both the religions it used to cater to. Also, adorning the walls are beautiful mosaics that are revealed, showing the power and prowess of the Byzantine Era. Mary and Jesus have also been depicted in the mosaics. 🕌 Interesting fact: This is the 3rd church built as Aya Sofia, the other two built earlier were destroyed in fires. Also, it just took only 6 years to build the structure of this size, given that the Notre Dame of Paris took a century to build.😮 #ayasofia #hagiasofia #istanbul #turkey #lonelyplanetturkey #lpfanphoto #lonelyplanet #ottomanempire #byzantineempire #beautifulmosques #beautifulchurches #history #turkeyhistory #sultanahmet #oldcity #travelgram #traveltillyoudrop #traveljunkies #instatravel #traveltales #travellersnottourists #travelbloggers #indiantraveller #travelblog

Jul 10, 2019

Die Letzten Legionen Konstantinopels Und sie marschierten noch, als das Römerreich im Westen schon längst untergegangen war. Sie überlebten somit nicht nur die Herrschaft der westlichen Cäsaren, sondern existierten im Oströmischen Reich beinahe unverändert fort. Komplexe Schlachtformationen, wie die Bildung der Schildkröte oder dem spätantiken Fulcum, waren auch ihnen nicht fremd und ihre interne Ordnung glich weitgehend der Struktur vergangener Jahrhunderte. Die Rede ist von der Organisationsform der römischen Legion, dessen Ästhetik und Präsenz auf dem Schlachtfeld die Phantasie der Menschen bis heute beflügelt. Schriftstücke aus dem späten 7. Jahrhundert legen ein letztes Mal Zeugnis von den Legionen ab und beschreiben ihr Einsatzgebiet im byzantinischen Italien. Wer waren die Angehörigen, woher kamen sie und wie waren sie bewaffnet? Dieses Buch liefert einen Beitrag zur Aufklärung mit einmaligen 3D-Rekonstruktionen zu Soldaten und Ausrüstungsgegenständen, Waffen, 16 Farbkarten, 8 Tabellen und Listen, Fotos sowie Steckbriefen zu den letzten Legionen. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #qualitytime #byzantineempire #Byzanz #iloveart #romanculture #book #mybooks #buch #bücher #literatur #bookstagram #buchblogger #bücherwurm #romanempire #ravenna #meinbuch #kunst #autor #schriftsteller #buchempfehlung #sommer #latein #schreiben #lesen #instagramwife #bookphotography #Legion #author #Art #Kultur

Jul 10, 2019

Römische Militärgeschichte Band 2 Studie zur römischen Armee und ihrer Organisation im sechsten Jahrhundert n. Chr. Das zweite Werk aus der Reihe 'Römische Militärgeschichte' bietet dem Leser eine umfangreiche Studie zur Struktur und Ausrichtung der Reichsarmee, beginnend mit dem späten 5. Jahrhundert bis hin zur Etablierung der römischen Themenverfassung. Schwerpunkt kann dabei nur die lange Regierungszeit des großen Justinians sein, der mit seinem Programm zur Wiedereroberung des Westens das Reich nachhaltig prägen sollte. Doch wird auch der Einfluss anderer Herrscher nicht unberücksichtigt gelassen. Um auch hier dem Leser einen besseren Zugang zu dieser Ära zu ermöglichen, wurde das Buch 12B des Strategicons von Kaiser Mauricius zur Infanterie in einer neuen, modernen Fassung aus dem Griechischen übersetzt, dies unter weitgehender Einhaltung militärischer Fachtermini. Die Studie befasst sich dabei ebenso mit der Herrschaftsstruktur und dem damit verbundenen Herrschaftsanspruch der Kaiser und ihrem militärischen Apparat, den im Reich gesprochenen Sprachen und der kulturellen Divergenz all der verschiedenen Stämme und Völker. Das Buch bietet umfangreiche Schilderungen zu Offiziersrängen und Aufstellungen oströmischer Regimenter und ihren Fahnen und Standarten. Weiterhin folgt ein Abriss zur Gesellschaftsstruktur und der Einbindung selbiger ins Militärwesen. Auch die enge Bindung des Christentums an das Reich der Römer wird ausgiebig erörtert, sowie dessen Kohärenz und Einfluss auf das Militärwesen. Abschließend sei noch die umfangreiche Analyse der Flotte und der Nutzen neuer Schiffstypen wie der Dromone erwähnt, ebenso wie der Bau spätantiker Festungen und Lager und die geschichtliche Entwicklung und Einordnung der letzten im Reich operierenden Legionen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #qualitytime #byzantineempire #Byzanz #iloveart #romanculture #book #mybooks #buch #bücher #literatur #bookstagram #buchblogger #bücherwurm #romanempire #ravenna #meinbuch #kunst #autor #schriftsteller #buchempfehlung #sommer #latein #schreiben #lesen #instagramwife #bookphotography #Legion #author #Art #Kultur

Römische Militärgeschichte Band 1 Rekonstruktionsversuch einer römischen Truppenliste des sechsten Jahrhunderts • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Das Römerreich des 6. Jahrhunderts wurde von großen Kaisern wie Anastasius, Justinian und Mauricius nachhaltig geprägt. Es war ein Zeitalter großer Erfolge, nicht zuletzt durch das Programm zur Wiedereroberung des Westens, in dessen Folge es noch einmal einen Triumphzug in Konstantinopel geben sollte. Doch war dieses Jahrhundert ebenso geprägt von heftigen Abwehrkämpfen gegen die persischen Sasaniden. Durch die hier erlittenen verheerenden Niederlagen wurde das Reich an den Rand seiner Existenz gebracht. Am Ende standen Gebietsverluste im lang umkämpften Italien und Zugeständnisse an die Langobarden, sowie der Verlust großer Teile des Balkans und Griechenlands an die eindringenden Slawen und Awaren. Im Osten gelang es den Persern Syrien, Palästina und Ägypten zu erobern und die persische Flotte erreichte sogar die Mauern Konstantinopels. Sichtungen unzähliger Papyri verschiedener Reichsteile, Berichte antiker Autoren und Zeitzeugen jener Jahre sowie eine Auswertung von Grabstelen und anderer Kunstgegenstände erlauben die Identifizierung verschiedener Truppenkörper dieser bewegenden Zeit. Dabei erfahren wir nicht nur die Namen und Standorte dieser Regimenter, sondern können durch einen Vergleich mit der amtlichen Notitia dignitatum aus den Jahren 390 bis 420 n. Chr. häufig auch deren Schildsymbole bestimmen. Die grafische Darstellung knüpft dabei bewusst an das spätrömische Original an. Primärlisten, Schemata und Tabellen wurden hierbei auf Lateinisch verfasst, alle Anmerkungen und Erläuterungen hingegen in deutscher Sprache. • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #qualitytime #byzantineempire #Byzanz #iloveart #romanculture #book #mybooks #buch #bücher #literatur #bookstagram #buchblogger #bücherwurm #romanempire #ravenna #meinbuch #kunst #autor #schriftsteller #buchempfehlung #legion #latein #schreiben #lesen #instagramwife #bookphotography #sommer #author #Art #Kultur

BITKA KOD DIMITRICE-PROMENA RATNE SREĆE Nakon što je normanska vojska osvojila Drač, a zatim i drugi grad Vizantijskog carstva,Solun, uputila se ka prestonici Carigradu. Međutim, njene nedisciplinovane trupe odale su se pljački i izgubile svoju borbenu snagu. Ovo je iskoristio vizantijski vojskovođa Aleksije Vrana koji je potukao neprijatelja u bitkama kod Mosinopolja i Dimitrice u novembru 1185. godine. Nakon ovoga Normani su napustili Solun, a zatim i Drač. . . . . #istorija #history #umetnost #art #historyart #ilustracija #illustration #historyillustration #nikolaosthessalosartworks #vizantija #byzantium #byzantine #istorijavizantije #byzantinehistory #vizantijskocarstvo #byzantineempire #norman #kingdomofsicily #srednjovekovnaistorija #medievalhistory #warhistory #srednjivek #middleage #medievaltimes

#🇹🇷 Istanbul series #1: This is pic taken a long time ago from one of my visits (out of 4) in Istanbul. At the time, I was on a short cruise on the Bosporus sea narrow, the straight water line that serves both as a continental border separating Asia from Europe, but also dividing Western and Eastern Turkey. From afar you can see two of the biggest historical buildings of the city: Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet). Hagia Sophia was built as a Christian Orthodox Church during the Byzantine era and later was transformed into a mosque. You can separate it from the Blue Mosque by the number of minarets. BM has 6 (!) and Hagia Sophia has 4. Back then it was controversial to build a mosque with 6 minarets because only Masjid al-Haram, the Grand Mosque in Mecca, had 6 minarets. In fact historic rumors (if such a term) suggest that Sultan Ahmet solved this problem just by adding a seventh minaret to the Grand Mosque. Why not? Today in Turkey there are two other mosques with six minarets, the Hz. Mikdat Mosque in Mersin and Sabanci Merkez Mosque in Adana. ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #istanbul #turkey #bosporus #cruise #cruiseonbosporus #βόσπορος #κωνσταντινουπολη #constantinople #hagiasophia #hagiasophiamuseum #hagiasophiamosque #bluemosque #sultanahmetmosque #mpletzami #μπλετζαμι #historicbuildings #historyclass #religiousbuildings #church #byzantineempire #byzantium #mosque #islam #mosquesofworld #minaret #ottomanempire #🇹🇷 #🌍 #thestrangetraveler

The entrance to the most beautiful #chapel I have ever seen 😍 I'm standing just on top of a round #porphyry slab. To symbolize the importance of this extremely rare stone, during the #byzantineempire the emperors stood upon it for their coronation 👑 Another #jawdroppingshots 😍 Over 2 tons of gold 😱 It's so unforgettable that I stayed for more than 3 hours trying to absorb as much beauty as possible! 😍 #duomodimonreale #cattedraledimonreale #monrealecathedral #culturalheritage #instatravel #instafun #photooftheday #picoftheday #hobby #photography #art #igersitaly #igersSicily #visitsicily
