  • Never before have I paid no attention, that mosques are beautiful stained-glass Windows. Was ecstatic! It turns out that they vtsrechajutsja not only in Christian churches. The old mosque, a small and very harmoniously flowing in the urban landscape. It is situated on the Asian side of Istanbul. Tourists almost never come into it, as many watch only European often of the ancient city.
