Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, Turkey

The map presented below shows the location of the Byzantine-era monuments of former Constantinople, now known as Istanbul. By clicking on the marker, you get the name of the monument. Some of these structures are very well known, for example Hagia Sophia or the Basilica Cistern. On the other hand, there are also rather obscure locations where not much is visible for the visitors today. As the map is a work in progress, we would appreciate all the feedback - as we are willing to expand the map or make the necessary corrections. Hopefully, this simple plan will make the exploration of Istanbul much more enjoyable, while hunting for the traces of the Byzantine Empire.
