Destination Eastern Turkey

A remote but impressive part of Turkey. Churches, mosques and madrasahs of the cities are monumental because of their well developed stonework. All of them have a great architecture and story behind them. Soil seems to be dry but will flourish in autumn. Spring and summer are the best times to see these precious items.
