Rumeli Hisari

That’s one of the most famous fortresses in our city.  It was built in the 1400’s, and they used it to make ships going through the Bosphorus stop to pay taxes.  Last weekend Mark and I walked around on the top of the wall and enjoyed amazing views of our city.  It is quite large, so we were very impressed to learn that they built it in 4 months.
