The Bulgarian St Stephen Church (Bulgarian: (желязната ) църква свети Стефан; Turkish: Sveti Stefan Kilisesi) in Istanbul, also known as the Bulgarian Iron Church, is a Bulgarian Orthodox church in Istanbul, famous for being made of cast iron. Built in 1896 at the place of first wooden Bulgarian Church.

The church belongs to the Bulgarian minority. The Bulgarians of the Ottoman Empire used to pray at the churches of the Phanar Orthodox Patriarchy, but due to nationalistic movements, Bulgarians were allowed a national church in the 19th century.

Pretty impressive.

Gerçi bunu historical'a açmak daha dogru olurdu.
ben o alt foruma bir türlü ısınamadım...Bence orada sadece manzara olsun... Eğer öyle yapmamız gerekirse, bütü İsanbul'u oraya taşımak zorunda oluruz çünkü... Zaten pek de kulnışlı olmadı o forum...

Above the portal of the church there is a big masonery sign, and i admit that it is the first one i ve ever seen on some ortodox church! And it tells us a lot!

^^ what do you mean?

There is something that looks like the Masonic symbol on second glance, but so what?
