The Haiga Sophia has quite an interesting history. Originally a Greek Orthodox church, it was turned into an Imperial Mosque and is now a museum. Its architecture is grandiose and is something that cannot be missed on a visit to Istanbul. The entrance fee was 25TL (which is around $12.50 USD) at the time I was there. And like any other major tourist attraction, there are many different types of street vendors around the grounds selling souvenirs and snacks, along with local peddlers who will try to scam you in some way or another. But don’t let that be discouraging! As long as you politely decline and keep walking, they leave you alone. My experience at this beautiful museum was just as amazing as the rest of my trip to Turkey! I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy!
