About Sultanahmet

Sultanahmet is known as the “old city” for good reason. When building the subway station in 2004, workers uncovered archaeological artifacts from about 8,000 years ago, making the city one of the oldest in the world. And because of this, the area is one of the most historic places in Turkey with many ancient ruins, mosques, tombs, and palaces. You’ll also find many of the country’s museums and monuments in Sultanahmet tucked in between the more modern eateries, shops, and pubs. 

The architecture alone in this community makes it the perfect place for selfies and photos to share on your favorite social media sites. Because this is a tourist attraction, it does get crowded during certain times of the year so plan accordingly. However, with so much to see and do, you should not have any trouble getting in and out of the places you want to visit. 

Surrounded by water on three sides, including the Golden Horn, which is a major waterway in Istanbul, there is always a beautiful sunset to be seen in the evening. When paired with the beauty of the old walls and monuments, this is probably the most attractive place in the country. And it does not hurt that they have a plethora of souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, and malls to entertain you. There are plenty of parks to enjoy here as well with lush greenery and vibrant flowers. 

Fun Fact: The Sultanahmet Mosque (Blue Mosque) was named after Sultan Ahmet, who built a place of worship to vie with the Hagia Sophia.
