Prinkipo Greek Orthodox Orphanage

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor gokhanakman created this drone video of a notable landmark on the outskirts of Istanbul, Turkey.  It's called the Prinkipo Greek Orthodox Orphanage, and it's located on Büyükada, one a group of nine islands situated in the Sea of Marmara, on the western fringes of the city.  Built around the turn of the 20th century, it served as an orphanage until the 1960's.  Believed to be the largest wooden building in Europe, its state of disrepair has put it atop numerous lists of endangered historical sites.
