To the Land of Mulla Nasruddin…

I have been waiting for this moments to see the world of merged culture and historical place Like Turkey!!

I was a child when I heard stories of wise man “Mulla Nasruddin”. Now It’s time to see his world.

I am going to visit Istanbul (Constantinople) , where all culture are merging. Let me produce some facts on Turkey.

 Istanbul (historically Byzantium and later Constantinople) is the world’s 3rd largest city and Turkey’s cultural and financial center. The city covers 27 districts of the Istanbul province. It is located on the Bosphorus Strait and encompasses the natural harbor known as the Golden Horn, in the northwest of the country. It extends both on the European (Thrace) and on the Asian (Anatolia) side of the Bosphorus, and is thereby the only metropolis in the world which is situated on two continents. In its long history, Istanbul served as the capital city of the Roman Empire (330–395), the East Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The city was chosen as joint European Capital of Culture for 2010. The historic areas of Istanbul were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985.

I am going on 21st. l will update you once I will be there!!!
