Let’s know something about this architectural beauty before you book your Turkey Holiday Package.

Hagia-Istanbul

Hagia Sophia is a majestic monument which has had its own significance in the stories of Istanbul since the time it was known as Constantinople. The Hagia Sophia has been subjected to various religious differences over a long period of time until finally when the Turkey government made it a symbol of secularism and turned it into a museum.

Today, the Hagia Sophia museum embodies secularism in Turkey, but, it was originally made as the church of Holy Wisdom in the 360. Later in the 404, the church was subjected to religious immoralities and faced the same consequences in 532 A.D. As a result of many differences over a long period of time, the Hagia Sophia was turned into a Mosque in 1453. With the culturally rich and luxurious design, the Hagia Sophia became a very vital part of the stories of Istanbul. Not only that, the Hagia Sophia had become an integral part of the skyline of Istanbul. It had become a significant monument in the entire world irrespective of the religious tag that it belonged to.

Hagia-Sophia-interior

While all the years of the prevalence, Hagia Sophia had become a beautiful home to various irreplaceable mosaics denoting the history of the city right from the Iconoclasm to the late ninth century. Moreover, Hagia Sophia preserves the treasure of the history of the city’s journey from Constantinople to Istanbul and beyond. Finally, in the year 1935, the government of Turkey acknowledged the art and the architectural uniqueness of the monument and declared its secularism. Thus, Hagia Sophia became a museum of national as well as international significance and stands for the art and architecture that it conserves till date.

interior

Research and restoration continue to safeguard and develop the art of this beauty called “Hagia Sophia”. This royal beauty has featured in various movies as well. The depiction of Istanbul’s beauty in the movie ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and ‘Ek tha Tiger’ is marvelous. Not just this, Istanbul is dear to many artists from different corners of the world. Interestingly, Agatha Christie, the famous mystery book writer wrote her famous work ‘Murder on the orient express’ in Istanbul. Ernest Hemingway is also a great writer who considered Istanbul a great inspiration. When you visit this beautiful home of the Hagia Sophia, you will know the reason why it is a muse to many.

Midnight Sun – What Is It And Why Does It Occur?

Scandinavia is a breathtaking land consisting of three countries namely Denmark, Norway and Sweden. These countries are located in the Northern Hemisphere. Now, what do we have to do with that? Well, the earth is an interesting place. So, let’s try to know about the amazement that the earth has brought to us from the northern hemisphere.

Midnight-full-image

When we are talking about the Midnight Sun, it sounds a little paradoxical. Sun and night don’t go together in one sentence unless it is “the Sun sets and the night grows”. Well, the amazing earth defies this very premise. So, let us try to understand what is the Midnight Sun?

What is the Midnight Sun?

scandinavia

Midnight Sun is a phenomenon where the sun shines even during the night. This happens in the Arctic and the Antarctic circles of Earth. That means in the regions in the Northernmost and Southernmost points of the Earth; the Sun does not set for roughly 6 months of the year. Fascinating, isn’t it?  Now, the northern hemisphere or the northern most point of the earth is a little more crowded as compared to the southern hemisphere. We establish this fact considering Human population and not Penguin population. The only major chunk of land in the Southern Hemisphere is Antarctica. In contrast, the Northern Hemisphere is spread over various countries like Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Canada. This means there are parts of these countries where there are days that just don’t end.

Why does this happen?

Equator---midnight-sun

We all know that the Earth revolves around the sun and rotates on its axis. But did you know that the Earth is tilted by about 23.4° on its axis? Yes, you read that right. The Earth is tilted on its axis by 23.4°. So, when the Earth revolves around the sun, there are some regions that are exposed to the sun for several days. When the northern hemisphere is exposed to the Sun for six months, the Southern Hemisphere faces Polar nights, which means the sun just doesn’t rise there for six months.

Norway is one country where the Sun never goes below the horizon from May to July. So, for approximately 76 days, the Sun just wouldn’t budge. That’s why Norway is known as the Land of the Midnight Sun.

This is an extremely fascinating phenomenon. You must witness it at least once in a lifetime.
