The bridge over the Bosphorus

At the word “Turks” the majority of our fellow citizens not so long ago there was an image of such person in a turban and in trousers.

Crusader knights around the XIV century cheerfully completed what before them could not make a devastating earthquake — dismantled the mausoleum almost to the ground to use it as a building material in the construction of the fortress.
