Within Istanbul, there is an abundance of history displayed in the Byzantine and Ottoman buildings. Standing proudly and dominating the skyline, these buildings make up some of the top “must see sites” of the world. UNESCO has also placed them on their world heritage list reflecting their importance in introducing us to the Byzantine and Ottoman periods.
