Location: Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, Turkey
Date: November 2012
There are a million things I love about Istanbul, but the Hagia Sophia is near the top of the list. The history is so rich as the building shuffled between Christian and Muslim cultures. Today, as a secular museum, you can see the years on this building for yourself. And there have been many years as the building dates back to the sixth century. If you find yourself in Istanbul, make sure to pop in and see this beautiful building for yourself.
