Church Of St. George, Istanbul Reviews - Write a Review

  • As this is very much an active religious site the only part open to the public is the church. While the architecture is simple the interior is magnificent. Make sure to grab the brochure in the entry to get an explanation of some of the churches more interesting items.

  • A blessed visit to the placethat stands for love, unity and understanting among Christian homologies.

  • Visit Constantinople in Istanbul! It's a very important church and a great spot to understand the Greek history and Orthodox religion.

  • The current Greek Orthodox Patriarchal Church. Very nice inside, limited hours.

  • A place of deep significance for Orthodox Christians, and well worth a visit for those interested in architecture and the history of this amazing city.
