A lot of scientific literature has been written for Byzantine Constantinople. There are also many guides to Turkish Istanbul. But these two things almost do not intersect. The authors of the usual guides are generally forced to confine themselves to a more or less brief description of the sights, the scientists-byzantologists are in no hurry to share their findings with the general public. In Istanbul, it's not easy to find Constantinople: because many of the objects are just ruins that will hardly tell anything to the unprepared traveler.
The book, the author of which is the Byzantologist Sergei Ivanov, allows us to pass through Istanbul and modern Ottoman and to reach Constantinople directly. Here are all the monuments of the Byzantine Middle Ages (their location is carefully marked on the maps) and everyone has a fascinating story. This is both a tour guide for tourists with whom you can conveniently walk around the great city and a brilliantly written scientific book.
