Iron Silk Road Photo Exhibition opened in Berlin: The opening of the “Iron Silk Road Photo Exhibition” was held in Berlin, the capital city of Germany.
Turks and Germans showed great interest to the exhibition held at the Hamburger Station Museum in Berlin, the capital city of Germany, as part of the "Eskişehir Railway Culture Project".
Eskişehir Governor Güngör Azim Tuna, who attended the opening of the exhibition, made a statement to the journalists, expressing his satisfaction with the opening of the said photograph exhibition in Berlin and said:
“Eskişehir has hosted different civilizations throughout history. It has been an important center where railways intersect since the 19th century. The arrival of this establishment in our city in 1892 left deeper traces in the culture and history of Eskişehir than a train to any city. Train tracks shortening the distances, bringing countries and people closer together and providing cultural exchange, actually mediated the bonding of hearts. "
Noting that high-speed trains are currently operating on the lines that were laid 125 years ago from Istanbul to Ankara and from Konya to Eskişehir, Tuna said that the 125-year dream has now come true.
Danube, in the past said that today photography exhibition reveals the Ottoman Empire and Turkey's railway culture, he added.
The exhibition with a total of 42 photographs will end after tomorrow evening. The "Iron Silk Road Photo Exhibition", which will be reopened on 13 May at the Berlin Turkish House, will remain open until 10 June.
