Fatih looks like a gigantic museum to visitors: the proudly erected Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophie jut into the sea on the peninsula. Sultanahmet and Eminönü are part of the district. The Golden Horn meets the Bosphorus. Those who have never been to Istanbul are drawn to the hotels in Fatih, close to the famous sights, traditional markets and bazaars. Fatih was the center of Byzantium, Constantinople and the Ottoman Empire.
