Travel to Maiden’s Tower with kites..
We are discovering Istanbul’s symbol, the Maiden’s Tower.
We are at Uskudar Salacak coast. Uskudar’s oldest name ‘’Chrysopolis’’, means ‘’Golden City’’. Because of the sun setting from right opposite, Uskudar becomes all yellow. That is why they called here the ‘’Golden City’’.
The tower which became one of Istanbul’s symbols, is the only work left from Byzantian era. The Maiden’s Tower, aside it’s grand history, was used in order to tax the ships that cross the Bosphorus. There was a big chain between the tower and Europe side of Istanbul and granted ships to cross between Asia and the Tower. After a while, the Tower could not carry the chain and collapsed to Europe side. Wrecks can be seen in the see while overlooking from the Tower. We will learn this legends with the guidence of Omer Kokal.
We arrive to the Tower with boat. Take pictures with the outstanding view and sip our tea while our guide tells us about the legends.
