MOSCOW

Moscow (Russian: Москва) is the 860 year-old capital of Russia. A truly iconic, global city, Moscow has played a central role in the development of Russia and the world. For many, the sight of the Kremlin complex in the centre of the city is still loaded with symbolism and history. Moscow was the capital of the former Soviet Union and signs of its previous life are very visible even now. Yet, there’s more to Russia and its capital than just memories of the USSR. Architectural gems from the time of the Russian Empire are still dotted throughout Moscow, whilst signs of modern Tsars (or at least people with similar levels of wealth) abound.

852

Moscow is the financial and political centre of Russia and the countries formerly comprising the Soviet Union. It has a population of around 13 million and an area of 2,511km² after an expansion in 2012. One-tenth of all Russian citizens live in the Moscow metropolitan area. Moscow is the second most populous city in Europe, after Istanbul. Moscow is in the UTC+3 time zone; there is no daylight saving time.

859

The Moskva River bends its way through the city with most of the sites of tourist interest on the northern bank of the river. The other major waterway is the Yauza River, which flows into the Moskva east of the Kremlin.

861

Much of Moscow’s geography is defined by the numerous ‘Ring Roads’ that circle the city at various distances from the centre, roughly following the outline of the walls that used to surround Moscow. With Red Square and the Kremlin forming the very centre, the innermost ring road is the Boulevard Ring (Bulvarnoye Koltso), built in the 1820s where the 16th century walls used to be. It runs from the Christ the Saviour Cathedral in south-west central Moscow, to the mouth of the Yauza in south-east central Moscow.

The next ring road, the Garden Ring (Sadovoe Koltso), derives its name from the fact that landowners near the road in Tsarist times were obligated to maintain gardens to make the road attractive. In Soviet times, the road was widened, and currently you will find no gardens there. 20160226_223800

The Third Ring Road, completed in 2004, is not much use for tourists but is a heavily used motorway which absorbs a bit of Moscow’s traffic. It roughly follows the outline of Kamer-Kollezhsky val, the customs and passport boundary of Moscow between 1742 and 1852. The outer edge of Moscow is largely defined by the Moscow Ring Road (widely known by its abbreviation: MKAD-Moskovskaya koltsevaya avtomobilnaya doroga), a motorway which is 108km long and encircles the entire city (similar to London’s M25 and Paris’ Périphérique).

Cappadocia (Turkish : Kapadokya) is an area in Central Anatolia in Turkey best known for its unique moon-like landscape, underground cities, cave churches and houses carved in the rocks.

The Cappadocian Region located in the center of the Anatolian Region of Turkey, with its valley, canyon, hills and unusual rock formation created as a result of the eroding rains and winds of thousands of years of the level, lava-covered plain located between the volcanic mountains Erciyes, Melendiz and Hasan as well as its troglodyte dwellings carved out of the rock and cities dug out into underground, presents an otherworldly appearance. The eruptions of these mountains which were active volcanoes in geological times lasted until 2 million years ago. A soft tuff layer was formed, 150 m in thickness, by the issuing lavas in the valley surrounded by mountains. The rivers, flood water running down the hillsides of valleys and strong winds eroded the geological formations consisting of tuff on the plateau formed with tuff layers, thus creating bizarre shapes called fairy Chimneys.

The prehistoric settlements of the area are Koskhoyuk (Kosk Mound) in Nigde, Aksaray Asikli Mound, Nevsehir Civelek cave and, in the southeast, Kultepe, Kanis and Alisar in the environs of Kayseri. This area with unusual topographic characteristics was regarded as sacred and called, in the Scythian/Khatti language, as Khepatukha, meaning “the country of the people of the chief god Hepat”, although there are more poetic claims on the origin of the region’s name, such as the Old

Persian Katpatuka, which allegedly means “the land of beautiful horses”. The tablets called Cappadocian Tablets and the Hittite works of art in Alisar are of the important remains dating from 2000s B.C. After 1200s B.C., the Tabal principality, of the Khatti Branches of Scythians, became strong and founded the Kingdom of Tabal. Following the Late Hittite and Persian aras, the Cappadocian Kingdom was established in 332 B.C. During the Roman era the area served as a shelter for the early escaping Christians. There are also several underground cities used by early Christians as hideouts in Cappadocia.

Ballooning, Cappadocia is known around the world as one of the best places to fly with hot air balloons. The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards – through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features – and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.

ANADOLU KAVAGI

Resim 045

Fish restaurants, gift shops, veteran boats and historical monuments welcome hundreds of tourists every year to 

Anadolu Kavağı. This is an ideal place for an escape in all seasons of Istanbul. It is like a harbor where you can find shelter away from the daily routine and the crowd of the city. It is a seaside village at the point where Istanbul meets the Black Sea, and blue integrates with green.

Resim 032

Those who go by land are recommended to take a break on Yuşa Hill, Istanbul’s highest hill. A common belief is that the grave of Joshua the Prophet is on this hill and every wish made here comes true. This is why you can see visitors who have come to fulfill their vows and to make new wishes while visiting Yuşa Mosque and Tomb. 

We highly recommend that you take a walk in the fresh air of Yuşa Hill, where you can also find gift shops, and stop in Gizli Bahçe (Secret Garden) to watch the city “from the highest point”.

Resim 147

The first place to go in Anadolu Kavağı – which lost nothing of its green; thanks to being a military protected area- is Yoros Castle. You can get to the castle with a twenty-minute walk from the pier. It is the symbol of Anadolu Kavağı. It was built in 1190 by the Genoans to protect the straits and is thus called Genoa Castle as well. Both the history and the view of the castle are worth paying attention to.

 While climbing up to Yoros Castle, you can take a break in Yoros Tea Garden on the way. You need to climb up a very steep road to reach the castle. Once you get there, take deep breaths of nature’s festival where green meets blue and theMarmara meets the Black Sea.

Londra metrosundan (1863) on iki yıl sonra hizmete giren ve dünyanın en eski ikinci metrosu olan Tünel,17 Ocak 1875 tarihinde, yerli ve yabancı çok sayıda seçkin davetlinin katıldığı törenle hizmete açılan ahşap vagonlu ve buharlı Tünel, 1971 yılında elektrikli hale getirildi. Karaköy ile Beyoğlu arasındaki 573 metrelik mesafeyi 90 saniyede alan Tünel, günde ortalama 200 sefer yaparak 12 bin dolayında yolcu taşıyor.
