Blue Mosque, Istanbul
On the other side of Europe we have another monumental place of worship. The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also known as the Blue Mosque, is a historic mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. Built in the early 1600s during the rule of the Ottoman Empire, the mosque is considered one of the finest examples of Ottoman architecture and is a major tourist attraction in Istanbul. The mosque has six minarets and a large central dome, and is decorated with blue Iznik tiles.
The Blue Mosque was built at a time when the Ottoman Empire was at the height of its power and influence. The grandeur of the mosque reflects this period of prosperity and strength. Today, the Blue Mosque remains an important symbol of Islamic culture and architecture, and is still visited by tourists from around the world.
Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco
The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most recognizable bridges in the world! The suspension bridge spans the Golden Gate Strait, the 1,6 km wide and 2,7 km long canal that connects San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean. The structure connects the US city of San Francisco, California - the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula - with Marin County, and carries both US Route 101 and California State Route 1 across the strait. The Golden Gate Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was completed in 1933, and has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and California. It has been named one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. check here our multiple cool architecture photography posters of this immense bridge!
River Seine, Paris
The Seine is one of the most iconic rivers in the world, and it flows through the heart of Paris. For centuries the river has been an important transport route, and even today the river is an important part of city life. Visitors to Paris can leisurely cruise the Seine, admire the beautiful bridges that span the river, or simply enjoy the view from one of the many parks and quays. Bridging this wide river is made easy by the 37 major bridges that make crossing from north to south a lot easier, one of which is depicted on this architecture poster!
Along the Seine are also some of Paris' most famous landmarks, such as Notre Dame Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower. And no visit to the city would be complete without a stroll along the riverbanks to take in these sights! Bring the romantic atmosphere of Paris to your own living space with this poster.
