Photographer's Note

On my second trip to Turkey, my main goal was to cover as much of the area of Cappadocia, I could, mostly in Nevsehir (in greek "Νεάπολις"="Neapolis") Prefecture, but I also visited and stayed for a couple of days in nearby prefectures, including Kayseri (in greek "Καισάρεια"="Kesaria"), a rapidly developing city, a great industrial and econopical power.

One of its sights that I liked the most, was the Bedesten, the old covered market, constructed on 1497. It is attached to the much bigger and newer, Covered Market ("Kapali Carsi")of Kayseri, a real labyrinth, which is the fourth largest covered market in Turkey. Inside the Bedesten you will mostly see carpet and kilim shops, and also some wool warehouses.
