Hagia Sophia - Istanbul. Not a cathedral, in fact a Mosque. But it used to a church, an early and important one, when the city was called Constaninople and was the seat of the Roman Empire.

Istiklal Avenue (Istanbul, Turkey). 'In İstanbul, you can board a commuter ferry to flit between continents and be rewarded at sunset with the city’s most magical sight, when the tapering minarets of the Old City are thrown into relief against a dusky pink sky. Elsewhere, history resonates with profound force amid the Ottoman and Byzantine glories of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and Topkapı Palace.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/turkey/istanbul
