Welcome to Istanbul!

Would you like to trace the path of spiritual icons across Istanbul in 5 hours?

If your answer is "yes," at Mervin Travel, we would love to make your travel experience a more spiritual one and want you to witness the special religious landmarks in Istanbul.

We organise a special tour, that includes historic mosques (the Hagia Sophia Mosque and the Sultanahmet Mosque), sacred churches (the Hagia Irene Church and the Virgin Mary Church), and a synagoge (Neve Şalom) in Istanbul.

During the tour, you will discover these impressive sanctuaries, and feel the most inspiring spiritual values of three religions.

Following the tour, you will have the opportunity to discuss the details and ask our tour guide any questions you may have while enjoying a meal at a restaurant serving local delicacies from the city.

What To Expect

Blue Mosque
The always crowded Blue Mosque, which gives its name to the historical district of Istanbul, is one of the most important architectures to be seen in Istanbul. The Blue Mosque consists of more than 20 thousand Iznik tiles and these tiles are the reason why foreigners call "Blue Mosque". The only mosque of the Ottoman Empire with 6 minarets. Interesting fact is; the Muslim world is disturbed by the fact that the Blue Mosque is being replaced by the only mosque in the world with 6 minarets in the Kaaba. The sultan of that period had to build a 7th minaret for the mosque in the Kaaba.
