First, I would like to thanks to all WWP management team for their great effort. It is very nice to be here again after very long time.

Rumeli Castle (Rumeli Hisarı) is an Ottoman fortress dating to 1452. It was built by Ottoman sultan Mehmed II (Mehmed the Conqueror) in preparation of the conquest of 

Constantinople. The castle is situated on the shore of the 

Bosphorus Strait at its narrowest point with approximately 

660 meters. Both Anadolu Castle and Rumeli Castle were 

built by Ottoman sultans in order to prevent military and 

economic aid to the Byzantine Empire coming from the 

north, Black Sea. Thus, Bosphorus strait connects Black Sea with Marmara Sea.

Things changes as in history, society, politics, everyday life etc, yet continuity give us a starting point again and again in life. Cultural continuity, cultural heritage is one of them.
