The Hagia Sophia, whose names means holy wisdom, is a Byzantine church which is considered unique for its magnificent architecture. The cathedral is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The place of worship owes its present look to the Roman Emperor Justinian, who let it built for the third time in the years 532 to 537. The costs were 140 tons of gold.

Until the completion of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, Hagia Sophia was the largest church in the world for 1000 years and some describe it as the eighth wonder of the world.

To the delight of more than three million visitors a year, valuable mosaics were brought to light again after years of painstaking work, as the Ottomans transformed the Hagia Sophia into a mosque, replacing Christian insignia with Islamic ones, removing icons, and partly destroying and partially plastering mosaics.
