During our visit to Istanbul in November 2011, we had the opportunity to visit the largest and oldest of the cisterns beneath the city. Our apologies for the poor quality of the video, the camera was having a lot of trouble focusing in such lowlight, but it does do a good job at showing just how many fish seem to be living down there, and how ethereal the columns really do look.

The video’s short as a result is just over 40 seconds.
