Doors of Süleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul

The Süleymaniye Mosque is an Ottoman imperial mosque located on the Third Hill of Istanbul, Turkey. It is the second largest mosque in the city and its largest Ottoman-era mosque. It is a beautiful building. An architectural wonder. And it has some very pretty doors. We visited it on a very cold and grey day so the external shots don’t do justice to it.

Doors of Pláka ~~

“Pláka is the old historical neighborhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporating labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Plaka is built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens. It is known as the “Neighborhood of the Gods” due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites.”  We stayed at a hotel in Pláka, which was the best decision we’ve ever made. Location, location, location! This post shows doors from the old part of Pláka. It was fun walking around the narrow streets looking for doors. And I found many! There will be more doors from Pláka in future posts.
