Turkey: map

Yesterday I got my first four postcards of 2017: one from Turkey, one from Thailand, one from Taiwan and one from Russia.

The card from Turkey shows a map of the country highlighting important historical places. Turkey has been inhabited since the Paleolithic and is home to many historical places including masterpieces of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. Sixteen places in Turkey are on the UNESCO World Heritage List, while 69 more are on the Tentative List.

Turkish Provinces - Eskişehir (from set of sixteen) (issued 28-09-2005)
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (from set of three) (issued 16-07-2009)

Thank You very much Almıla!
