Church of St. Stephen of Bulgars Istanbul
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.
