The Crown Jewel of Western Civilization
This beautiful city is a journey into the past. A magical, poetic journey showing us not only the history of the city, but of a great empire that once was, a culture that has evolved through a multitude of changes, and an insight into the psyche of man. Like our mind, there are deeper layers to this city than meets the eye.
The colosseum is a majestic endeavor of engineering and architecture. The fact that it still stands today, enduring wave after wave of change, metamorphosing what it represents: a place where we showcase our best against great odds, to an audience of our peers. What started as a structure it has become an icon.
Rome was not built in a day, and like all great cities, Rome has incorporated its past into its present and functions seamlessly. The Pantheon, once a Roman temple, converted to a church, is a testament to this embodiment. Amid the countless spectacular fountains and statues, there is great life, flowing strong like the river Tiber, in this city.
“Turks were a great nation even before they adopted Islam. This religion did not help the Arabs, Iranians, Egyptians and others to unite with Turks to form a nation. Conversely, it weakened the Turks’ national relations; it numbed Turkish national feelings and enthusiasm. This was natural, because Mohammedanism was based on Arab nationalism above all nationalities.”
