Balat - HDR by kutayk • A view of the old streets of Balat, the old Greek neighbourhood in Istanbul, Turkey where the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (Fener Greek Orthodox Patriarchy) is located.
Located on the edge of the Aegean Sea, the ancient city of Argilos was the first Greek colony established in this area around the great Strymon River. At its peak in the 5th century BC, Argilos was one of the richest cities in the region.
