A postcard showing the Sultan Ahmet Square (Sultanahmet Meydanı) with the two iconic buildings, Hagia Sophia (left) and Sultan Ahmet Mosque (right), at the background. There are three surviving obelisks in this square formerly known as Hippodrome Constantinople during the Byzantine era. The obelisk found in this picture are Obelisk of Thutmose III (shorter on the left) and Walled Obelisk (higher on the right). This sqaure is part of the Archaeological Park of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of "Historic Areas of Istanbul." This is one of the cards sent during a visit to this city. 

A 2,50 Turkish Lira EUROPA stamp on musical instrument was used. It was sent from Küçükmustafapaşa, Fatih, Istanbul on 4.6.2014.
