AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
In this drone video, you’ll see something beautiful and something like you’ve never seen before. It comes courtesy of pilot gokhanakman and is all shot in Turkey. The beautiful piece is Yedigöller National Park, a park best known for its seven lakes, is located in the northern part of Bolu Province. The second half of the piece features Burj Al Babas, a residential development whose homes are meant to resemble mini chateaux, however the developer went in to bankruptcy, leaving these odd 732 homes eerily empty.
Description: The Yedigöller National Park (Turkish: Yedigöller, "seven lakes") also known as Seven Lakes National Park is located in the northern part of Bolu Province in Turkey. The park is categorized under IUCN II and was established in 1965. The park is best known for the seven lakes formed by landslides and for its profusion of plant life. Burj Al Babas is a residential development located near the Turkish town of Mudurnu. The homes in the development are designed to resemble miniature chateaux. The center of the complex was to include a domed structure containing stores, a movie theater, and other facilities open to residents. Construction began in 2014. The development was originally successful, but sales eventually stalled, causing the developer to enter bankruptcy. Falling oil prices and instability in Turkey have been cited as reasons for the lack of sales. As of January 2019, 587 of the planned 732 homes were complete.
