  • A very interesting place worth a visit for those who were in the school history of Byzantium. It is a pity that now the object of historical heritage is in the strongest decline and became the refuge of the marginalized.

  • To imagine such a structure stood strong over such a long distance defending the city, is truly fascinating. Some parts still exist in their true form. With a bit of care, am sure they will stand for many more years to come. Good walk in the park beside the wall. No entry fee applicable.
  • Nice walk by the ruins of probably the best city defense system of all times. Very small part of the length is fully restored. Most of the towers and walls are on the verge of collapse and it's a pity that this monument is so neglected. If renovated they could offer a nice walk from Marmara sea to Golden Horn and would be a major attraction.
  • Interesting, but empty. This is not the restored walls these are ruins. I think they are absolutely beautiful and they made great pictures.
  • اسوار القسطنطينية، هذه هي بقايا الاسوار التي كانت تحيط بالقسطنطينية التي بنتها الامبراطورية البيزنطية، وحاليا تحيط بالمدينة القديمة باسطنبول.
  • THIS IS THE WRONG LOCATION. THE RESTORED WALLS ARE 3 KILOMETERS SOUTH.
