First and only iron church in İstanbul

If you ask me the most interesting church in İstanbul is Bulgarian (Stefan) Church. Located in the Golden Horn between Balat and Fener, Bulgarian Church was a wooden church when first constructed in 1800’s. Time has passed and Bulgarian minority decided to make a bigger and durable place to worship.

The new construction was in iron. The interesting story about construction was the great amount of metal components has been carried from Black Sea by gigant ships. The reconstruction has finished within 2 years and church re -opened in 1898. Since then it has been used by Bulgarian Orthodox community. Today it is open for public and touristic visits. [more ]
