Published by Sala Hassan — 10 months ago

At first I thought that Turkey was the perfect place to spend a vacation on the beach, relaxing near the swimming pools! But this is not only the country of great civilizations, which has left behind a number of architectural monuments.

The following are the seven highlights in Turkey:

Haidar Pasha train station (Haydarpaşa Gerı)

is one of the most beautiful buildings on the territory of Turkey, the construction of the station was completed in 1909 by a company called the Anatolia Railway. To build this magnificent station, the company employed two German architects, "Helmut Kon" and "Otto Ritter", who chose the modern classical model to build this station.

Construction began in 1906, and ended in 1909.

Topkapi Palace (Topkapı Sarmaı)

In 1479, by order of Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih, the Topkapi Palace was built, which until the mid-nineteenth century was the headquarters of the Turkish rulers.

The palace was built on the site of one of the ancient buildings, built under the Byzantine Empire, on the shore of the Marmara Sea.

Currently, the palace is one of the most important museums in the world.

The Temple of Artemis (Artemis Tapınağı)

It is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world, and the temple is located on the Mount Ephesians, which is called at this moment the Seljuk mountain.

Unfortunately, there were only a few remains of the temple, there were 127 columns, each with a length of 18 metres.

The first temple was built in honor of Lartmis in the sixth century BC.

The ancient city of Vasilis (Phaselis Antik kenti)

If you are planning to visit the city of Kemer (Kemer) in southern Turkey, it is worth renting a bicycle or a car and going to the old Vasilis, where it is 15 km from the city, and thanks to this trip it will be an opportunity to discover Turkey and the interesting scenes and wonderful places.

The city of Vasilis was established in the seventh century BC by the colonizers who came from the island of Rhodes.

The town is located on the foot of Mount Olympus, which was described by Homer in the Iliad.

Antalya Aquarium

is an important tourist attraction located in Connecticut (Kunyaaltı) and is considered one of the largest basins in the world.

The journey begins during the basin, starting with independent fish ponds with different fish species and a 131-meter-long underwater tunnel, which is the most exciting place.

Galata Tower (Galata Kulesi)

is one of Istanbul's oldest archaeological monuments.

The tower, built in the 14th century, is 61 metres high, located on a natural hill, so it can be viewed from anywhere in Istanbul.

Sofia (Ayasofya)

Sofia is the best example to witness the splendor of Byzantine architecture, and a symbol of the former Byzantine greatness.

Originally, the cathedral was built as an Orthodox church, but in the 15th century, the cathedral was transformed into a mosque for Muslims after the opening of Istanbul by Sultan "Muhammad al-Fateh".

Nowadays, it is one of the finest museums in the world.

The construction of the cathedral began in accordance with the decision of the Byzantine emperor Justinian, who wanted to reflect the power, power and wealth of the Byzantine Empire.
