Izmir from the Hills

A great view of my home city of Izmir, formerly known as Smyrna. (Zoom in as close as you wish and you can make out a lot of interesting details.) You can just make out on the opposite shore of the Bay of Izmir, the sister city of Karsiyaka. And to the extreme right, you can see the ancient citadel known as Kadifekale (literally "the velvet castle" in Turkish) on Mount Pagos.


  1. My sweet hometown.. You have no idea how I miss you here..

  2. Dont worry, it will be here when you come home. :)


Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
