A virtual guided tour followed by live Q&A with Şerif Yenen, prominent Turkish travel specialist, writer, tourist guide, and travel filmmaker. In English.

Hagia Sophia (Ayasofya), dubbed the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by historians, is one of the most visited places in the world in terms of art and architecture history. Built in 537 by the eastern Roman emperor Justinian I, it was the largest Christian church of the eastern Roman Empire and the Eastern Orthodox Church. It was then the world's largest interior space and among the first to employ a fully pendentive dome. It is said to have "changed the history of architecture". Şerif Yenen will be interpreting Hagia Sophia with breathtaking images and videos.
