Basilica Cistern

Old City

The amazing cistern of Yerebatan was built in the same year as the Hagia Sophia and it has been the source of water for the palaces for the Byzantian and Ottoman empires.

It used to hold 80 thousand cubic meters of water.  Today it has half a meter high water with a fantastic cafe where poetry and music recitals take place.

James Bond fans would remember this ocation from the 1963 film, “From Russia with Love”.
