During Byzantine times, the hippodrome was stadium and chariot-racing track which could seat 100,000 spectators. The only surviving remnants of the hippodrome are the Egyptian Obelisk, the Walled Obelisk, and what's left of the Serpentine Column, which adorned the spina, or central divider of the track. Here you'll also see a fountain, given as a gift to Istanbul by the German Kaiser Wilhelm in 1898. You'll find what's left of the hippodrome in Sultanahmet, Istanbul.
