A visit to Chora Church is something for the more adventurous traveler. Located in the Edirnekapi neighborhood just inside the Theodosian Walls, you can get here by bus or taxi but don't wander too far, because it is not the safest neighborhood. The visit is still well worth the effort. Chora Church houses what is arguably the most extensive and best preserved collection of Byzantine frescoes in Turkey. The walls, domes and archways contain elaborate and colorful renderings of saints, Old Testament Patriarchs and bible scenes. The most moving of these may be the Anastasis--a depiction of Christ rescuing Adam and Eve from perdition.

Pulling in 5,000 guests every day, a standout amongst the most well known displays at the historical center is the "Stairway to Hell" by Monica Bonvicini in 2003, a figure highlighting chains and shot smashed glass.

Istanbul has a sight that people must view when they are visiting this ancient city. The Pera Museum, endowed by the industrialist Rahmi Koc and his family, is a treasure trove of the wealthy family's inventory of culturally significant Tukish works. It accomplishes that task well, featuring handwritten Ottoman-era books, Byzantine works, and a Republican era book collection. The crown jewel of the collection is the $3.5 million painting, "Turtle Trainer," by artist Osman Hamdi Bey, who has five other pieces on display at this Turkish museum.

Hagia Irene Museum

Hagia Irene Museum

4.7/53 Reviews
Museum
Hagia Irene was constructed along with Hagia Sophia by Constantine the Great during the 4th century AD. In Greek the names of the two churches mean "Holy Peace" and "Holy Wisdom" respectively. Throughout its history, Hagia Irene has been shown up by Hagia Sophia. Even today it's mostly closed to the public and for much of the Ottoman period it was used as an arms storage building. However, if you find yourself strolling along the main courtyard of Topkapi Palace toward Hagia Sophia, take a moment to examine this magnificent relic of early Byzantine architecture. Even better, get tickets to one of the infrequent classical concerts held here.
