I wanted to go to the most well known sight in Istanbul ” The Hagia Sophia”. The Hagia Sophia is a gigantic mosque which is now a museum but originally it was a Christian church in roman times. The massive building was built by the roman emperor Konstantios in 360CE. The Hagia Sophia was rebuilt three times in the same place. It was the biggest church in the world until S.Peters was built. It was very big.
We also went to the ” Blue Mosque”. I personaly like the blue mosque better than the Hagia Sophia, because it is more pretty and it is lit up at night!! And I am not kidding about how pretty it is, with all its hand painted tiles and carpets and… It’s just super pretty. When we went in Gabriela had to wear a head scarf and cover up her legs. Luckily I did not have to! In side there was one big red carpet that covered the hole flore. We had to tacke our shoes off and put them in a plastick bag, That is because the Moslems pray kneeling down on the carpet and they put their forehead on the ground. There were some people praying to Allah.
I LOVE ISTANBUL !!!!!! 😍😍😀😀
