Sores Dogan : Mount Nemrut

Sores Dogan-Turkey-001

 

Turkey’s culture and history, including sites like Mount Nemrut, is what makes the country so attractive today.
Hip, cultural Istanbul is where many travellers start their voyages of discovery. Like New York isn’t America, Istanbul isn’t really Turkey, but a state in it’s own right. Unlike New York, Istanbul has 3,000 years of civilisation to inspire herself with. On the same latitude as Rome (and also built on seven hills), this was the perfect capital for the Emperor Constantine to establish the Eastern Roman empire from, just when old Rome was tearing itself to pieces.
