Even after a full day looking at other stuff of historical value, the Hagia Sophia blew me away. It is BIG. more than the sultan's palace or the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia gave me a sense of being tiny. The building is, and contains, hundreds of priceless works of art. This literally dropped my jaw. You don't wanna go to Istanbul and miss this.
also, it might seem like there's a huge line, but go ask one of the policemen gaurding the gate, because often that is a line of tourbus people, and you can use a different entrance.
