Sofia, Bulgaria

The Banya Bashi Mosque is a visual reminder of Bulgaria's Ottoman past and a jewel in Sofia's architectural crown.  After all, Banya Bashi was designed by Sinan, Suleiman the Magnificent's chief architect.  The fountain suggests what's pooling underground:  not just water, but hot water.  Sofia's mineral baths are nearby.  [2010]
