The map of historical peninsula (old city-inside the walls) and my route


PART 1

We are entering the city by passing the towers



These bad reconstructions are criticized by UNESCO- Statue belongs to mother of Atatürk


Armenian Church and nice flower figure on the armenian tomb


Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia(left side). They are in Europe but hills behind them are in Asia.


Eurasian coots and thier habitat map. These are possible russian coot and have came to Turkey just for winter


This is the only part of walls which is near the sea.


Memorial of friendship between Turkey and Turkmenistan.


This is showing the biggest passenger port of İstanbul. After the Byzantine port, there wasn't any Ottoman port near Marmara coast. The green area was a Byzantine port which was filled (Istanbul-1922)

If you check the map, you can see my point. All ports were in Golden Horn.

Now I am going away from the sea


the first house is very cool which was built in 1932. Second picture is an other Armenian Church


in this time, a greek church


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Byzantine_Constantinople_eng.png


The base of column in forum Arcadius. Second one is Bodrum Mosque, a old church.

this is the normal praying position. Mosques should reference Kabe, however, Byzantine churches reference East. so people in side the bodrum mosque are making line not straight as in the picture, they are making cross line.Big smile


This is a cistern near the church-mosque and as you see, russian is very common in table languge. This place is near the area called Laleli which is famous with leather goods.

Hagia Sophia has an unquestionable beauty, but I am bored. That's why I try to focus on small details such as my photoes which were taken in Pera(Galata), yesterday

You can see the Galata on map


different plants on Ottoman fountain 


Wall of Galata


Lion figure, I think it is from Latin period of Constantinople. This is Arab Mosque which built during Arab attacks. Later, it had converted catholic and then ortodox church


This place, especialy sea side is still commercial area. You can see history and shops(not touristic ones) mostly about machines and electric-electronic


a few meter laters the zone of banks begins. This is part of Galata, Ottoman bank zone and probably it has been lasting since Genoa period


entrence of old british sailor hospital, guess when it was built? (Ans:1904) Big smile

Wall of Constantinople but not land walls. Here they are; Propontis Walls Big smile

behind the wall is railway


Walls was near the sea but sea was filled and built parks and ways on it . The Structure which is located behind the wall, is Little Hagia Sophia (Church of the Saints Sergius and Bacchus)


As you see, the wall parts are not same




Boukoleon Palace

 




There isn't many historical gate left in Propontis Wall. This is one of them 




A social cafe of local goverment


Ottoman Fountain





Maybe part of Marble Kiosk ???

İs It Church? and its inside
