    Constantine I moved the Roman capital from Rome to Constantinople, in what is today Turkey. Meekly enough, he named the new city after himself. The goal was to try to get closer to eastern pagan wealth and further from the European barbarians sacking Rome. By 361, Constantinople had a population of 300,000, making it larger than rapidly shrinking Rome & probably the largest city in the world.

Galata Tower... in Istanbul, Turkey. (via Vintage | Arts, design, photo, fashion)

Galata Tower - is a medieval stone tower in the Galata/Karaköy quarter of Istanbul. One of the city's most striking landmarks, it is a high, cone-capped cylinder that dominates the skyline and offers a panoramic vista of Old Istanbul. The nine-story tower is 66.90 meters tall and was the city's tallest structure when it was built.

Galata street, some of the oldest streets in ancient Constantinople are here with their cobblestones worn by Byzantine chariots, crazy crazy.

Look at the Galata Tower in Istabul! Isn't it amazing...gotta love good architecture. www.annjaneliving...
