MARDİN; fairytale city of ancient civilizations

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Prepare to be blown away by this stunning drone video of the ancient Turkish city of Mardin, compliments of contributor Burak BÜYÜKBAYRAKTAR.  Mardin is the capital of the eponymously named province in the southeastern part of the country, and was an important city in the "original" as well as the "neo" Assyrian Empires.  The city is known in part for its distinctive architectural style, much of which stems from the use of beige-colored rock which is produced by nearby quarries.
