Church of St. Stephen of Bulgars Istanbul

Church of St. Stephen of Bulgars Istanbul
This rather strange church is an example of Gothic architecture and was made from cast iron in Vienna in 1871, then shipped down the Danube River in sections, reconstructed on the shores of the Golden Horn and placed on the site of a previous wooden church that had been destroyed by fire. 

The Bulgarians built the church as a sign of their independency from the authority of the Greeks and it became the seat of the Bulgarian Exarchate that was basically a slap in the face to the patriarch further up the road. 

There are only a few other buildings like this one, it is open for visitors from 09:00 to 17:00 every day and is well worth taking a look at.  The large and grimy building directly opposite was once the school associated with the church.
