Herakleia3 bafasee turkey

Die Überreste der antiken Stadt Herakleia liegen am Camici-Gölü (Bafa-See) an der türkischen Westküste südlich von Kusadasi. Die Ruinen liegen verstreut im Dorf Kapkiri und zum Teil auf den Felsen des stark zerklüfteten Besparmak Dag (Fünffingerberg). Wie zerklüftet dieser Berg ist, kann man hier gut sehen. Einer der vom Berg herabgestürzten Felsen dient einer einfachen Hütte als Rückwand. Weitere Panoramen finden Sie unter www.derPanoramafotograf.com - More panoramas at www.derPanoramafotograf.com

Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
