  • Beautiful churc located next to Ekumenical Patriarchate.Very old church with breattaking decorated iconostas and interior.This is an active church with regular Sunday mases.  more »
  • The place is very interesting for lovers of history, and to the believers. The traditional Orthodox churches an abundance of gold and darkness contrast sharply with the previously viewed Muslim mosques. Quite an interesting collection of religious artifacts. Not very noticeable on the outside of the building, easily slip by.

  • Taksim Street near little commercial area just behind the Church. Tourists are not much loved by the local Christians Church. Appearance is not much decoration inside was overwhelming in a very luxurious decoration. Is the Church in Europe is not much different from the more splendid interior. It is recommended that visitors look at when you come up to Taksim Square.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
