Turkey: Istanbul SultanAhmet,Taksim sq & Istiklal Av.

Hi,

I made short video travel guide in Istanbul european side.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61e2cKRLa_o

started from Eminonu seaport, the continued toward Taksim Square ( City Center on the European Side).
then walk along famous Istiklal Avenue where St. Antonio Church and Galata tower , where in between historic tram is still being used .

In SultanAhmet, went to gullhane park (hunting places for the Sultan) and Sultanahmet park with its lovely fountain. then the Hippodrome , the ancient greek horse and chariot racing place.

visited SultanAhmet Mosque ( famously known as Blue Mosque), and Hagia Sophia( Museum that has been used both as Church and Mosque).
and the Basilica Cistern, the underground water reservoir that well preserved till now.

Hope this help those who plan to go there
