For discussing any and all forms of art associated with Turkey, from the most ancient miniatures, to abstract modern art, from carpets and kilims, to classical Turkish music.

Do you doubt that Turkey has any? Inhabited since 7500 B.C. by great civilizations like that of the Hittites, Persians, Galatians, Roman rule for almost three centuries, the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire, to the current new Republic -- now there's something to talk about!

Although not seemingly related to art, travel to Turkey is the only way to experience that which cannot be experienced on a web site. Here is a place to discuss when, where, what, and how for any kind of trip to any part of Turkey.

You might be surprised that the city that was once considered the center of the world may still have claim to that title.
