Khalkedon: The Land Of The Blind

Khalkedon is the ancient name of Kadikoy. It is also called "The Land Of The Blind" by The Oracle of Delphi, because the people of Khalkedon choose to live here, not the more atractive European part. Oracle advised the Megarians to establish their city accross the land of blind. I must confess that I prefer to called as blind.

Unnecessary information: Kadikoy is the biggest and most populated district of Istanbul and also Turkey.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice place to live

    Loved Kadikoy. Might be returning to Bursa later this year! Did you get to make any deals on souls with your 666 status?

    Only been to Kadiköy to take the ferry. Longest stay there was to eat in the fishboat with a view up to Denizati. Btw, are those fish-restaurant-boats still there?
