  • Located in Taksim, this church was built quite a large area and there's a big garden and courtyard. I like I do every time I leave this church in Taksim, today too, get some rest and then I did my visit. Never repair a renovation or maintenance untouched, that is seen as a church. It's original state. Find peace and quite a good religious places to pray. If you go my cab you a little visit and visit. Hope you like them.

  • 8:30 opens the gate, get was Education Office (room facing the entrance). Holy place (worship of rooms) it is not only during the liturgy. However, it is recommended to visit educational Institute alone is beautiful.

  • I have been there several time, the guard at the entrance sometimes ask for an offer and few liras are enough. The place worth it.
  • Be aware. They invited me to see inside and then asked me to donate. I gave $10 Lira but they didn't like it at all. They threw me out in less than ten minutes.
  • Greek Church in the heart of Pera.
  • Nice to visit a church in Turkey
  • Best view, Best place.

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.
