Hippodrom, Istanbul
Istanbul

Das Hippodrom wird heute von den Türken At Meydan genannt, was nichts anderes bedeutet als Pferdeplatz. Ursprünglich war dies der Circus Maximus, der bei einer Länge von 400m etwa 100000 Zuschauern Platz bot. Der Bau wurde im Jahr 203 von Septimus Severus begonnen und von Kaiser Konstantin dem Großen ca. 120 Jahre später vergrößert. Jahrhunderte lang fanden hier Zirkusspiele, Feiern, politische Kundgebungen und Revolten statt, bis nach einem Großen Feuer 1203 das Hippodrom verfiel. Nach der Eroberung Konstantinopels durch Sultan Mehmet Fatih 1253 wurden die gewaltigen Überreste als Steinbruch für den Bau von Moscheen und Palästen verwendet.

More About Istanbul

Istanbul (historically Byzantium and later Constantinople; see the other names of Istanbul) is the largest city of Turkey and the third largest city in the world. The city covers 27 districts of the Istanbul province.It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbor known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) side of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world which is situated on two continents. In its long history, Istanbul served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330–395), the East Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The city was chosen as joint European Capital of Culture for 2010. The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.
