Hagia Sophia, Museum in Istanbul, Turkey

The Hagia Sophia is a grand structure with a dome that appears to be miraculously suspended in the air.

Originally built as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral in 537 AD, it was later converted into a mosque and then a museum.

It's a symbol of the long and diverse history of Istanbul, having served as a place of worship for different religions.
