Some photos from research trip at Istanbul

Last week I took a research trip to Istanbul. I visited a lot of beautiful places of my beautiful city Istanbul.
It was a great nostalgia. This week I will try to share my trip photos with some infos. But don't expect great photos. Because my hubby couldn't come with me and I am really nt good about taking photos :)

Let's begin ...
If one day your way fall to Istanbul, Taksim & Beyoğlu is one of the places you should see. Istanbul has many hearts for visit and Taksim is one of them. Take a walk through Istiklal Street... I promise that you will be tired of looking up all historical building on the way.

And yes ... One of my stop was Taksim. This time I wanted to see different angle of Taksim, so I took a trip on little streets of Beyoğlu.

Hagia Triada Greek Orthodox Church, Istanbul

The building was erected in 1880 and is considered the largest Greek Orthodox shrine in Istanbul today. It is still in use by the Greek community of Istanbul. It has about 150 parishioners.
Its construction, based on the designs of the Ottoman Greek architect P. Kampanaki, began on 13 August 1876 and was completed on 14 September 1880. The Church is built in neo-baroque style with elements of Basilica, with the unusual features of twin bell towers, a large dome and a neo-gothic facade.
The Church is located in Istanbul, in the district of Beyoğlu, in the neighborhood of Katip Çelebi, on Meşelik Street, near Taksim Square.
