Turkey: Ankara

Today I got ten postcards: one from Turkey, five from Germany, one from Indonesia, one from Taiwan, one from South Korea and one from the Philippines.

The card from Turkey shows various views of Ankara. Ankara is the capital of Turkey and also Turkey's second largest city.


Stamps:
EUROPA (from set of two) (issued 09-05-2014)
100th Year of Battle of Sarikamish (issued 22-12-2014)
The Battle of Sarikamish was fought between the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire at the Caucasus Campaign from 22nd January 1914 to 15th January 1915. It ended with a victory of the Imperial Russian Army.


Thank You very much Ayse and Emre!
