Istanbul at Night
Picture taken on 15 August 2006
We are in the middle of the river Halys (=Golden Horn). On the right side there is the new Galata Bridge, the big mosque is the Yeni Camii (=New Mosque), following the river to the right are several small landing stages for the public ferries of Istabul. A little bit higher is the illuminated Topkapi Palace, the historical residence of the Ottoman sultans.
