Avram Kamondo

Avram Kamondo bestowed many architectural Works to Istanbul The sad story of a Galata banker

THE GALATA BANKER HAD ALSO DRAWN ATTENTIONS WITH THE LOANS HE HAD GIVEN TO THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE ALONG WITH THE ARCHITEGTURAL WORKS HE HAD ADDED TO ISTANBUL SUCH AS KAMONDO STAIRS IN KARAKOY, KAMONDO BUSINESS CENTER IN GALATA. UNFORTUNATELY, THE STORY OF WEALTHY KAMONDO FAMILY ENDED IN AUSCHWITZ CONCENTRATION CAMP…

The Jewish banker Avram Kamondo who had bestowed many architectural works to Istanbul has quite a unique life story. The magnificent stairs across the former Otto-man Bank building in Galata and the Kamondo Busi¬ness Center are only two of the works of art he had left to Istanbul… The mausoleum of this Istanbul lover in Haskoy is now left to delinquency.

The Military Expedition to Nahcivan

On 28 August 1553, the Sultan started from Istanbul for a new military expedition to Iran. This was his twelfth mili-taiyexpedition. He was quite an aged man, 59 years old. The Sultan arrived in Erzurum via Konya and Diyarbakir and from there he advanced in Kars direction.

But none of these treats yielded a result, the Iranian army once again did not appear on the scene. The Turkish army proceeded in the directions of Karabag and Nahcivan areas. Although the Sultan’s army reached as far as Nahcivan, Shah Tahmasp and…

Nile, Stuttgart and New Delhi

Life on the Nile A journey by boat from Luxor to Aswan is one the loveliest tripsy you will ever make. The journey from L uxor to Aswan ona dahabiya, the traditional sailing cruisers that ply the Nile today as they have done for millennia, takes around six days – and will be amongst the most rewarding weeks you will ever spend travelling. Most of your time on the boat is spent up on deck, watching the landscape slipping silently by, disembarking at regular intervals to admire a nearby temple, a pharaoh’s tomb, or simply the ever-present desert. The berths and beds on board are very comfortable, but the best…

How the Bosphorus was frozen in 1954

Curious Eyes The next day, it’s reported that the wind changed direction and the ices move rather to the shores of Sile and this fact lightens the Bosphorus. After that the ices quit the Bosphorus and it stops snowing, such news cover much lesser place in the newspapers. After the flow of ices, on the first Sunday when a mild weather is felt, the inhabitants of Istanbul rush to the Bosphorus. “Gece Postasi” reports the news as follows:’’The inhabitanst of Istanbul watch the flow of ices covering the Bosphorus at various points and they take photos together with their families. Some tricksters trying to take advantage of this event took…

Bulgaria Private Tours – Kazanlak Tour with rose picking for lovely Dutch people

Twelve happy and lovely Dutch people (six couples and twelve friends) left The Netherlands to visit my beautiful and friendly country, Bulgaria. They also joind one of our Bulgaria Private Tours.

We met on Friday, 20.05, the day of their Bulgaria Private Tours, Kazanlak. They travelled from Plovdiv and I was waiting for them in the village of Tarnichane, at the rose distillery. Some rose picking (well, it wasn’t as early as 5 am – Bulgaria Private Toursthe usual time to start the picking up), good and detailed information about the different oleaginous roses, the process of distilling and making rose oil and rose water, etc. Everything was fine but we missed the usual 10:30 coffee break. Back to our vehicle and off to Kazanlak. We had our coffee in the centre
