About 10 years ago, or slightly more, we took a short holiday in Turkey, in Istanbul. It was a fascinating place. We didn't have a digital camera in thosae days so these are scans.
We saw the entrance to the University of Istanbul
The Hagia Sophia, originally constructed as a church.
The Ortaköy Mosque
Rumelihisarı or the Rumeli fortress
But my abiding memory is going for a walk in the attractive gardens bordering the Golden Horn, an inlet of the Bosphorus - and being almost overwhelmed by the dreadful smell. So much so that not a single photo was taken! Apparently it used to be well-known for being smelly.
[I know, I know - I cheated!]
Updated to add: if you click on the link I gave above you will see that the cause of smell (pollution) has been sorted out:
"The Golden Horn, once renowned for its green grounds and the unique sea creatures in it, but losing its popularity due to bad smell and pollution in 1990s has regained its unmatched beauty."
Istanbul is a wonderful city and I was not intending to put people off visiting.
