Now we often talk about everything and anything that is Armenian but did you know that (hey even if you know don't spoil the fun of those who don't ) that once upon a time there was a huge Armenian city called Ani! Armenian chroniclers (Historians) first mentioned Ani in the 5th century AD. Ani had a population of 100,000 - 200,000 people and was the rival of Constantinople!!! Located on now Turkish soil, very unfortunetly (Kars Province) it has become deserted. Also called the "City of 1001 Churches". They described it as a strong fortress built on a hilltop and a possession of the Armenian Kamsarakan dynasty. If I had to travel, that's where I'd go.
Those who are interested (I mean how can you not be!??!) to learn more about this ancient Armenian jewel, go to http://www.virtualani.org/citymap.htm
The picture you see is the West side wall, also called the Nicole wall.
On a more personal note: I always tried to silence any feeling of racism but frankly it pisses me off to the highest level that this city is located on Turkish soil, who by the way are letting unprofessional archeologists conduct all sort of works and diggs, and if you read further you'll see that great damage has been done to the city's remains during the period of 2006-2007.
And since i'm so cool, I got you the coordinates so you can check it on the google satellite map (40° 30' N, 43° 34'E)
Anyways! I hope you find this interesting.
