In the train from Ankara to Sivas, Turkey

From Ankara, I continued my journey with the train to Sivas, a very cheap and quite comfortable way of travelling - for my ticket from Ankara to Sivas, I didnīt pay more than around 10€. In general, train travelling is incredibly cheap in Turkey - for less than 30€, you can cross the whole country from West to East, and a ticket for the 2000 km-distance from Istanbul to Teheran costs less than 40€. But unfortunately, the Turkish rail network is really not very dense, the whole system is focussed on the main line from Istanbul to Kars near the Armenian border, and has only a few short secondary lines. But in the last years, the Turkish rail system has been improved very much: New trains have been bought, modern highspeed lines were introduced and even some new rail lines are under construction.

Here are some pictures I took from the window of the train from Ankara to Sivas:

Sivas, Turkey (Part I)

In Sivas, I stopped for two days in order to visit the many preserved 13th century Seljuk buildings for which Sivas is famous in art history. The Eastern Anatolian city with a population of around 300,000 was for some decades the capital of the Seljuk empire in 13th century and is still full of buildings of this time, among which you can find some of the first exemples of Islamic monumental architecture in Anatolia.

Hereīs the first part of my pictures from Sivas:
