On our last day in Istanbul we went to visit the “big tourist attractions”.
First was the Hagia Sophia, after waiting in line in the rain for which seemed like an eternity!
The view from the Hagia Sophia to the Blue Mosque.
All in all visiting the Hagia Sophia wasn’t really worth the money of the expensive entrance fee. There are nicer mosques to visit in Istanbul which are free of charge.
Later we went to the Dolmabache Palace and it’s Harem (one of the main halls below).
At night we then took a 10h night bus to go the Cappadocia in the center of Turkey.
