Bulgarian St.Stephen Church, Istanbul Overview

Bulgarian St.Stephen Church or Bulgarian Iron Church is an Orthodox Church in Balat belonging to the Bulgarian minority community in the area. This church is one of the hidden gems of Istanbul. It was constructed during the 19th century following a Bulgarian nationalist movement. It was closed in 2011 and reopened to the public in 2018 after a large-scale renovation. Showcasing both neo-Byzantine and neo-Baroque architectural influences, the building is made up of cast iron. It consists of a three-domed cross-shaped basilica with the altar facing Golden Horn and a 40m high belfry. It is easily accessible via a bus or a Golden Horn boat trip.
