Sure, these aren't all churches in Turkey! But it's hard to find pictures of them. I'm sure other users will add more fotos.

And as far as I know, only two of these churches are museums nowadays. But they're churches anyway!

I supose these gothic or catholic churches are for the tourism communities or the small foreigner communities created the last 20-30 years. (i have heard that especially for Antalya where the last 10 years millions of germans come for hollidays and some they buy houses and stay after they become pensioners)
Generally speaking there was never a serious influence of western church in the region of south balkans and turkey. (exception is some islands that stayed for many years under venice).
It is obvious also from the fact that most of these churches are quite new.
Anyway keep up with new photos guys , very nice pics !

Well, that's not true. There are many Christian centers in Turkey which existed over centuries.

Istanbul for example has a huge influence by Armenians, Greeks, Italians and Bulgarians which started more than 150 years ago. In the 20th century, mostly Russians, Germans and British came to Istanbul and influenced the Christian scene as well. Nowaydays, foreigners and foreign business people in Istanbul pray in existant churches and don't have any new ones built up. But Christianity in Istanbul was originally established in the Byzantine Empire.

Eastern Turkey has one of the oldest churches and monasteries in the region. Don't forget that the Turkish peninsula has become muslim about 500 years ago. So, this region offers a huge number of very old Christian buildings.

The Aegean coast was influenced over centuries by Greeks, so there are many churches as well.

The North coast had always had a huge influence by Russians, Georgians and Greeks and has still a big number of christian communities.

But you're right, nowadays, many touristic destinations in the South want to offer tourists religious buildings as well. These are the new ones. But there have been churches all over Turkey for ages.

actually all these are historical churches. Now, witht he new immigrants from Germany to the south cities like Alanya, new churches has been openned. It took time and didnt happen easily, due to some laws. Becaase our laws were not suited Christians immigrants before. With some struggles, the new Protestant chuches of Germans has been openned and active now.

(settled German population of Alanya is 50.000 ppl witht he number of 2005)

I heard somewhere that the number of 50.000 Germans is exaggerated (and that it's actually more like 10.000 or so), but I don't know.
