    Valen's Aqueduct

    July 10, 2016 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We are cramming so many things in whilst in Istanbul.

    Took the local transport to the other side of the city to check out the Aqueduct.

    The Valens Aqueduct (Aqueduct of the Grey Falcon) is a Roman aqueduct which was the major water-providing system of the Eastern Roman capital of Constantinople (modern Istanbul, Turkey). Completed by Roman Emperor Valens in the late 4th century AD, it was maintained and used by the Byzantines and later the Ottomans, and remains one of the most important landmarks of the city.

    Really feeling like locals.

    Sülemaniye Moschee

    May 19, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Weiter geht es zur Sülemaniye Moschee. Leider ist diese aufgrund des Mittagsgebetes gerade für Besucher geschlossen und so genießen wir nur die herrliche Aussicht auf den Bosporus und Beyoglu und entschließen uns am folgenden Tag noch mal vorbeizukommen um das innere der Moschee zu bewundern.

    The Blue Mosque

    November 22, 2013 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 63 °F

    The Sultanahmet Mosque is also known as the Blue Mosque because of the lovely blue light that comes through the stained glass windows. There was a place reserved for prayer but the vast majority of people we saw were sightseers. We were impressed that there were women at the doors enforcing a dress code and assisting visitors who did not meet it. Some of the marble cladding the exterior of this building was scavenged from the Hagia Sofia, whose exterior is now made of brick that has begun to crumble.Read more

    Onyedinci aşama (2/3): Istanbul

    September 17, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Die restliche Zeit des Tages verbrachten wir in den Gassen von Istanbul. Wir besuchten den großen Basar und gingen zur Galatabrücke. Dort stärkten wir uns mit einem Fischbrötchen, was leider viele Gräten enthielt. Zum Nachtisch gab es süße frittierte Bällchen.
    Bisher mit dem Islam nur wenig in Berührung gekommen, feierten wir den Gesang des Imams aus den plärrenden Lautsprechern der Moscheen.Read more
