Ancient City

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor OGB Omer Gokcen created this drone video of a famous ruined medieval town in eastern Turkey.  It's called Ani, and it's in the province of Kars in Northeast Anatolia.  Around the turn of the first millennium, Ani was the capital of a vast empire called Bagratid Armenia which covered much of modern-day Armenia and parts of Turkey.  Once one of the world's largest cities, Ani was sacked by the Mongols in the 13th century and devastated by an earthquake in the 14th; it never recovered.
