ISTANBUL - HAGIA SOPHIA

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

AirVuz contributor ucarakkesfet brings us this magnificent drone video of Hagia Sophia, one of the great landmarks of Istanbul, Turkey.  Built as a church in the 6th century during the Byzantine Empire, it became a mosque following the fall of what was then Constantinople in the mid-15th century.  It was the largest building in the world until the construction of Spain's Seville Cathedral in the early 16th century.  In the 1930's, it was converted into a museum under the secular-minded Turkish President Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.
