One Day Tour to
April 20th-21rd, 2007
One Day Tour to Edirne - We will make
an early start traveling west to the city of Edirne.
The Selimiye camii in Edirne is one of the truly
magnificent examples of the architecture of reknown
Miman Sinan. The mosque was built in the late
16th century. Surrounded by four very slender,
fluted minarets the mosque has a serenity and
harmony that the visitor will feel immediately.
Then we will see the Eski camii built in the early
15rh century. This camii has huge calligraphy
on its walls that is almost overwhelming. We will
make a short stop at the Bedesten bazaar. Here
you can stroll through the shops situated in an
early 15th century complex. Finally, we will visit
the newly opened Vakiflar museum with its collection
of rugs and kilims.
