    Gorgeous!! We went in Turkey 4 years ago and i remember that Galata was surrounded by walls, constructed by the Genoese. These walls started at Azapkapi near the Golden Horn. The Galata Tower was the northernmost observation tower and the walls go down. Beautiful shot Jens!!

  • Thank you very much for your interest and visit Lorena! Nice that you know Istanbul :)))
