Photographer's Note

On this picture you've a beautiful view on the Selimiye Mosque (formerly St. Sophia Cathedral) that is located in the northern (turkish) part of Nicosia. The minarets can not be overseen since they have a nice blueish color.
The foundations where laid in 1209 but the cathedral was not consecrated until 1326. The interior itself is plain giving a sensation of space and serenity.
The City mentioned here is Lefkosa which is the turkish name for Lefkosia (Greek) or, like we call it, Nicosia.
