Yesterday we arrived to Edirne in Turkey
Today we took a walk and we visited 3 mosques, an archaeological site, a Historical Museum and an old marked, all of it within short walking distance. It is an amazing city.
The three mosques we visited are
Eski Cami from 1414
Üc Serefeli Cami from about 1447
Selimiye Cami from 1569
First we went to see the old Macedonian Tower and the excavation of part of the old city Hadrianopolis, founded by the Roman emperor Hadrian (117-138 AD)
Then we visited the Mosques. The first ones we visited had many local visitors in guided groups, learning about the mosque.
The third, and biggest, and most impressive one – the Selimiye Cami – looked bright in the morning sun
Inside there was a remarkable light and outside the mosque there was a remarkable live
Then we went to the archaeological museum. Here we found some very old images of men on horseback
On our way to the marked, we met symbols of Ata Türks modern Turkey
