Exhibitions City of Ani

Ani was the capital of an Armenian Kingdom more than one thousand years ago. It had population of at least 100 000 and it was known as the "City of 1001 churches". This ghost city uninhabited over three centuries is located near town of Kars in northeastern Turkey. I visited these sad remains on May 2007.
