    Sergey, very interesting page with fabulous photos of this ancient Turkish town. I especially like your comments about the "Made in Austria" renovations. Have a lovely weekend.

    Amazing how much is still left of Ephesus, despite the earthquake you mentioned. Oh and your music...Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi and Turkish music, so perfect for this magic place (how much did I miss to listen and watch!!)

    I guess I'm an "old stones lover" as I love this page on Ephesus esp. Celsus Library, Temple of Hadrian and Curetes Street. And a 44,000 seat theater - wow!

    Turkey is a paradise for old stones lovers! Your pages are incredibly rich Sergey, and I really walked in the ruins with you, but . . what is the link between the latrines and brothel? Do you mean St Paul wrote his Epistle to Ephesians to a sinner’s city?

    LOL..this is really an interesting public toilet! Maybe there was a wooden seprating wall before (?) ...but the Celsus Library looks awesome. The pictures remind me of Greece...

    wow - this theater must be worth to be seen. We have the same in Plovdiv but it's only for 7000 seats,but still working :) You have a great page,I plan to go to Kusadasi,so I'll definitely visit Ephesus and some others. Thanks :)
