The Hippodrome of Constantinople was the place for horse races. It still survives as a park in which the traces of the old race course are clearly visible and a ruin.

The word hippodrome comes from the Greek hippos (horse) and dromos (the way). The Hippodrome of Constantinople was also home to gladiatorial games, official ceremonies, celebrations, protests, torture to the convicts and so on. Hippodrome operated all in Roman (203-330 CE), Byzantine (330-1453 CE), and Ottoman (1453-1922) periods.[/penci_fancy_heading][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][vc_separator][penci_image_gallery images=”2357,2358,2359,2360,2361,2362,2363″ auto_time=”4000″ speed=”800″ block_title_align=”style-title-left” custom_markup_1=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_icon icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-globe” background_style=”rounded-less” size=”sm” align=”center” link=”|||”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_btn title=”Organize Your Visit” style=”flat” color=”info” size=”sm” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”|||”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1547041801797{border-radius: 5px !important;}”][penci_review id=”2352″][/vc_column_text][penci_single_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aQc074_eig” cover=”2353″][/penci_single_video][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row equal_height=”yes” content_placement=”top”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1546780711559{border-radius: 5px !important;}”][penci_grid_9 build_query=”post_type:post|size:4|categories:48,249″ style_block_title=”style-title-9″ block_title_align=”style-title-left” post_standard_title_length=”12″ block_id=”penci_grid_9-1546785232049″ custom_markup_1=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
