Photographer's Note

This is Safranbolu, one of the Turkish sites that have been declared by the UNESCO as a World heritage.

Safranbolu in northern Turkey, not far from the Black Sea, was a major trading place for about 700 years until the arrival of the railway, which made most trade go in other directions.

Other towns all over the Ottoman empire were influenced by the architectural style of Safranbolu. This was the case in for example Gjirokastër or Berat, both located in southern Albania and both classified as World heritage cities, just like Safranbolu.

In a workshop you can see another photo from Safranbolu.
