Aja Sofija

Aja Sofija (Crkva Svete mudrosti) je bila najveća crkva u bizantskom carstvu, odnosno prijašnjem Istočnom Rimskom Carstvu. Sagrađena u doba cara Justinijana u Carigradu, Aja Sofija , jedno od najvećih graditeljskih dostignuća. Prvu crkvu na tom mjestu koju je započeo car Konstantin, bila je razrušena usred pobune 532. godine, kada je Justinijan zamalo izgubio prijestolje. No on ju je odmah dao ponovno izgraditi. Ponovno je izgrađena za samo pet godina (537.) i odmah je dostigla svjetsku slavu. Gradili su je Antemije iz Trala i Izidor iz Mileta. Nakon osmanlijske pobjede 1453. crkva je pretvorena u džamiju, a izvana su dodana četiri minareta. Mozaici koji su postojali u crkvi prekriveni su vapnom. Aja Sofija je prva kupola na pandantivima koja je bila izgrađena do tog razmjera, pa je zato od velikog značenja za sve bizantske građevine, kao i kasnije one na zapadu. Aja Sofija je 1935. godine pretvorena u muzej.

Haghia Sophia is considered one of the finest architectural works in the world. Although it was occasionally damaged and repaired, its essence remains untouched especially since 1453.

No visit to Istanbul is ever complete without visiting the Hagia Sofia, former basilica, mosque, and now a museum. Pay attention to all the mosaics and the dome, some of the museum's best features.

We could say a lot about Ayasofya... But, for me, two words: home and hope...

The inside is even more intresting that the outside. Especially the mirrored marble on the walls.

İstanbul'a gelen turistlerin ilk rotası... Alt galerideki minberle üst galerideki freskler başka yerde bulamayacağınız mükemmel bir sentez. Dev kubbesi ve kubbeye çıkan yol baş döndürüyor
