The northernmost Ottoman minaret?


Never believe what people tell you. In 1994 I was told that Eger (HU) has the Northernmost minaret built in the Ottoman Empire. Imagine my surprise when I came to Kamyanets'-Podil's'kyi (UA).

Hi Muumi,

just in God we trust :-) By the way, after crush of the USSR, few former republics of Soviet Union was changed the history how they like it. Just to be sure to the independent and to be more cool than Russia. I remember from my school that Russia was born from Ukraine. Now, we thinking that Russia was born in the North, not so far where Putin was born :-). Between real history and politic we have the bullshit.
