Casablanca is the cosmopolitan, industrial and economic heart of Morocco as well as its largest city. However, it is one of the less endearing of the country's sights. With a small, unassuming medina and a traffic-congested Ville Nouvelle, travellers arriving via Casablanca may be tempted to find the first train out to nearby Rabat. Those who decide to stay for a day or two will find that Casablanca is like any other European city: the streets (mostly) have signs, and passersby are very helpful in French or Arabic and, in a more limited way in English.
This is another view from Boulevard Mohammed V with its 2 km-long arcades under which shops and restaurants abound.
Mohammed V Bulvarı
Kazablanka Fas’ın kozmopolit endüstriyel ve ekonomik kalbi olma yanı sıra en büyük şehridir. Ancak, ülkenin manzaralarının daha az sevimlilerinden biridir. Küçük, mütevazi medinesi ve sıkışık trafikli Ville Nouvelle’i ile, Kazablanka’ya gelen gezginler yakınlardaki Rabat’a doğru ilk treni bulmaya ayartılabilirler. Bir veya iki gün kalmaya karar verenler Kazablanka’nın herhangi bir Avrupa kenti gibi olduğunu göreceklerdir: Sokaklarda (çoğunlukla) işaretler bulunur ve gelip geçenler Fransızca veya Arapçayla çok ve daha sınırlı bir şekilde İngilizceyle yardımseverdir.
Bu, altında bol mağazalar ve restoranlar bulunan 2 km uzunluğundaki kemeraltlarıyla Mohammed V Bulvarı’ndan bir başka görünümdür.

Fantastic pic. that describes well a modern town that kept a traditional style of architecture.
People stroll along on the beautiful boulevard, gave excelent dynamism, and there is a fine clear view of the buildings contour lines.
Archs in juxtaposition made a wonderful view on the facade.
All culminate to a superb photojob done.

a well composed picture with strong perspectives that make the description of this place very interesting and effective. You've made excellent use of forms, patterns and space, the view you are presenting is comprehensible and attractive. You handled light and contrasts skillfully, there's great definition and the darkness through the arches surely raises our curiosity. The human presence adds movement, interest and life to the architectural setting. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

A fine shot of this area in Casablanca. POV gives an excellent view of the building with the arches and great depth to the shot.nice clarity and lighting show well the detail in the picture like the peeling paint on the wall and the fine detail of the decorated arches.people on the street add nice human interest. Nice work Murat.

nice the view of this daily scenery of the beautiful Casablanca that i was visited four years ago.I remember this charmy Boulevard of Mohamed V with the passing by natives to add life in the scene.

You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive the long arcade with unique shape and white outer wall. It's also impressive that the geometrical pattern by green/yellow is given in entrance gate. And, it's interesting tram's track in the street.

The architectural style of the immediate building caught my eye immediately with the perspective leading us to the new building in the backdrop offering a nice combination of old and new. I love the enchanting part of this town for its oldie feel, good human interactions and speck of vivid colours drawing much interest around. Lovely soft light, gorgeous vibrant blue, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. Excellent capture, tfs

excellent angle catching the long façade covered with arches, the mauresque style is visible here too. TFS.

very nice street scene here. I like the architecture in the foreground with characteristic arches. It is nice to see some daily life from such an exotic country.
Very well done,
