02. Hagia Sophia

The iconic city of Istanbul needs no introduction, it is already known by most as the city split between two continents, linking Europe to Asia via the Bosphorus Strait, former capital of the Roman Empire and home to four UNESCO approved historic areas.

Breathing the air of the place that was once the bone of contention between powers that dominated the world.
