Hagia Sophia, Istanbul

The only place where Christian and I3
Muslim symbols can be seen hanging
side by side?

Hagia Sophia in Istanbul was built as a church in the 500’s, later on converted to a mosque. That’s when the minarets were added. Today it’s a museum.

You can also find some graffiti made by vikings, employed by the emperor as body guards.
