Connecting Lviv to the World: Erzurum

Issue 34, April 2011.
English travel author Sir John Mandeville provides us with one of the first literary references to Erzurum in his 14th century accoun of journeying through modern-day Turkey. He drew particular attention to the cold temperature of the local climate — something which he attributed to the mountainous terrain. Erzurum remains one of the coldest spots in Turkey and a focus for winter sports — five kilometers south of the city lies Palandöken, a state-of-the-art ski resort that soars to 3,271 meters.
