Inspired by Turkishcobra´s "Turkish Cities Game" :

 

I will think of a Turkish landmark and give it´s location.  Users must think of another landmark and quote it´s location.  There must be some form of connection with the previous landmark eg.

a) neighbouring area/province

b) as in Turkishcobra´s game, the name of the next landmark must begin with the first or last letter of the previous one  (landmark name or location name may be used).

c) any informative fact that links the two consecutive landmarks

 

Happy hunting everyone (well almost everyone) !

 

I will begin with two, as an example.

Kız Kulesi (I hope the spelling is correct as I found different variations) location = İstanbul

to

Kapadokya - home of the famous "fairy chimneys" and ancient underground cities (Central Anatolia)

 Sarayiçi (connection is it is near the Tunca): the old site of the Ottoman palace in Edirne when Edirne was the capital. The tower of justice still stands, and the wrestling matches take place here.

Marion,

 

You are supposed to start with the first/last letter of the previous one (have you noticed the red bold letters?). You break the rule. Bir daha olmasın.{#emotions_dlg.head_bang}

 Canım sorry I read the (a), (b) and (c) as either (a) or (b) or (c):

c) any informative fact that links the two consecutive landmark

 

In my defence, The first example was Kız Kulesi and Kapadokya. I didnt think Istanbul neighbours Nevşehir (rule a), and there is no link given (rule c), only rule (b) applied. So I though it was OK to just pick one of the three points.

 

I promise to never, ever, be naughty in this game again!

Selimiye mosque (a great monument from Sinan) in Edirne

Oh, acctually I didn´t pay attention to (a). I think you don´t break the rule then. There is a connection between Tunca and Sarayiçi through Edirne.
