  • Get approximately 40 minutes by car from cities Şanlıurfa (Urfa). Above all impressed scale broken ruins of a mosque, which was only one minaret. At other locations ruins traced the architectural changes of the dominant religion. For example in some buildings on the ceilings can be noticed as bricks stacked cross, this suggests that Christians lived in the once huge castles, but something where you can see that these crosses are closed on top of other blocks, the characteristics of which are visible in the Muslim buildings. Of course there is the exposition of the homes and life of those times, built specifically for tourists, but I'm an opponent of such artificial exhibitions. Isn't that a drink there Turkish tea. I advise to visit the current mosque Harran, named in honour of Harran, where he was buried.

  • The houses beehives are mere tourist attractions no longer inhabited; interesting the structure of the houses, but it's like a theme park. The ruins of the Castle and of the mosque not be visited from inside, you have to settle for a ride outside. I felt uncomfortable, because you feel like a fish out of water; not much to look at and the nearby Syrian border puts a bit of turmoil, personally not worth getting the 40 km by Sanliurfa for 30 minutes to view.
