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]
