Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya) is the one of the most visited museums and most prominent monuments in the world in terms of art and the history of architecture. It has also been called “the eighth wonder of the world” by East Roman Philon as far back as the 6th century. It was used as a church for 916 years but, following the conquest of Istanbul by Fatih Sultan Mehmed, the Hagia Sophia was converted into mosque. Now it is used as a museum.
The doors of Hagia Sophia Museum can be opened exclusively for FEST Travel travelers between 19.00-21.00.
