Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern was built in the 6th century during the reign of Justinian I. as the main water reservoir for Istanbul – back then called Constantinople. The underground hall is supported by rows of regal columns. The hall seems to spread endlessly into darkness, as the sparse illumination lets further away columns glow just like mere lanterns. In the morning hours, silence spreads over the waters, startled just by the distant echoing of water drops or quiet splashes from carps coming to the surface. As a James Bond hide out from the 'From Russia With Love' and a mystic place of Dan Browns 'Inferno, the basilica cistern has some mysteries for you too.

The Roman Hippodrome in Istanbul, Turkey, served as an ancient racetrack where historical chariot races, major social events and athletic competitions were held. It was decorated with the Egyptian Obelisk and other famous columns along its spina, a raised central platform used to divide the race track. Hosted the biggest riot of Eastern Roman Empire, the hippodrome offers some links with Hagia Sophia and St Mark's Basilica of Venice.
