  • This is the wall which remained unconquered the longest in the world, much longer than the Chinese wall. Best is to combine the visit with the visit of the Chora church. The more sportive one's can wa...  more »
  • This wall was called the second miracle of Constantinople in addition to the Hagia Sophia. This structure built with three wall rings, secured the city for approximately 1,000 years. A must for history buffs.

  • 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.
