If you are at Istiklal Street or somewhere near, it's worth to spend few minutes to look inside. The church practically isn't visible from the Istiklal Street, you need to turn into a niche and go down a few steps. The church on that place...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
