The most photographed icon of Belgrade, St Sava Church, is centrally located and visible from every corner of Belgrade. The façade of the church, the windows and bells were finished in 2009 but inside it's still a “work in progress” which still doesn't stop you admiring its sheer size. St Sava Temple is the largest working Orthodox temple in the world.

The museum has good exhibits of swords, daggers, armour spread around several floors, nicely displayed and precisely described in Turkish and English, and shown in chronological order and gives you ample opportunity to learn about Turkey’s rich past. The most imposing exhibits are the silk tents used by Ottoman sultans during invasions. Don’t miss the part of the Museum showing the great chain that Byzantines stretched across the Golden Horn in 1453 during the Ottoman siege of the city. My favourite exhibit is a flag from the 1389 Kosovo battle which took place on Kosovo field and was the beginning of the Ottoman Empire’s expansion into the Balkans and later into Europe. Even though the flag is faded you can still see the Ottoman inscription and blood stains on it. To hear the Mehter Band you have to be at the Military Museum at 3pm when there is a performance of 17th and 18th century Ottoman military music in full period costume. The special theatre built within the museum resembles an amphitheatre and has very good acoustics. The whole performance lasts for about half an hour and during this period you can learn why the Ottoman Army was so feared. According to the information at the Military Museum the Mehter Military Band is the oldest one in the world and all other military bands are an imitation of this one. Some believe that sound delivered from the Mehter had an influence on European classical music with composers such as Haydn (Military” Symphony), Mozart (The Abduction from the Seraglio) and Beethoven (Passage of the final movement of his Ninth Symphony).

Everyone should visit Hagia Sophia at least once in their life. Amazing architecture and history!

The oldest-known love poem was written in Mesopotamia 4,000 years ago and can be found inscribed on a slab of stone in Istanbul’s Archaeological Museum. Istanbul’s Archaeological Museum was the first museum in Turkey but nevertheless ranks as one of the finest and largest in the world with over a million objects. It’s close to Topkapi Palace, on the way to Gulhane Park so very close to Sultanahmet and the other major sights of the city, and is well worth a visit on a day tour of Istanbul. The museum itself is in 3 parts, the main part is in a handsome neo-classical building which houses ancient statues galore from before the Romans, the exquisitely carved Alexander Sarcophagus which depicts the life and battles of Alexander the Great, the evocative Sarcophagus of the Crying Women, the Treasury, Library, coin collections and artefacts unearthed from excavations nearby that form an exhibition of Istanbul through the ages. It stands next door to the 500-year-old Tiled Kiosk which was a royal pavilion beautifully decorated with turquoise tiles and calligraphy, originally the emperors’ private hideaway a little way away from the main palace, and it exhibits ceramics. The Museum of the Ancient Orient is the 3rd section and it was built originally as the School of Fine Art. It houses artefacts from Mesopotamia, Egypt and Arabia, and one of its treasures is that lovely poem, another is the oldest peace treaty in the world, inscribed on a clay tablet in the 12th century BC, a 13th century BC sphinx from the Hittite Empire, and loot from an Egyptian tomb.

My favourite walking place is Hughenden Park. There is a combination of forest and open fields, a stream, a church, manor house and a nice coffee shop. They recently opened a WWII map museum. There is parking, free of charge but it gets busy on nice mornings like today. Not flat - ideal for dogs and not very small kids.
