About this ebook

Byzantine Secrets of Istanbul is the book that tells the stories about a dozen of less-known historical structures located in Istanbul from the times when this city, as Constantinople, was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. The aim of this book is to take its readers on the journey of discovery and help them find the forgotten treasures of Byzantium, hidden among the narrow streets of the city. The chapters can be read separately, but they are arranged chronologically. The selection of the places was inspired by the wish of diversity, so you can read about churches, columns, cisterns, and palaces. If you happen to have a day or three to spend in the search of the Byzantine secrets of Turkey's largest city, this is just the beginning.
