  • There is not much to see - the interior is totally bare, but it is still majestic and will certainly be worth a visit for those familiar with the history of Bysantium. I recommend getting a museum pas...  more »

  • The Hagia Irene today operates as a museum and concert hall. Yes the floor was huge and a waltz works good there. The upper level was off limits, it had a mesh net across to stop pigeon droppings. Una...  more »

  • A lovely place, although it is fairly stark, bare and semi-ruined inside. However, much more could be made of it simply by providing a few decent information plaques and such.
  • The history is great, the place is amazing, however how it seems to be managed makes the visit a bit frustrated. It is a place in ruins, however ruins do not need to have an abandoned feel to it. It is called Holy Peace, and yes there is peace inside and a black plaque with white text with some information about it. That's it.
  • Great atmosphere, but do not expect something more than just the space inside. For me it was worth it, we were almost alone there and I really enjoyed that moment, but there are no frescos, no statues, almost nothing left, just the acoustic and the space. I would love to enjoy some concert inside.
  • Very authentic place. Less known than Aya Sophia but not so crowded and amazing. One of my favourite spots. A must see in Istanbul.
  • Don't miss the events like concerts. Worth being in here.
