Evliya Çelebi spent his life travelling to the ends of the Ottoman domains and beyond. With his Book of Travels as our guide, we will accompany him as he roams, observing the world through his enquiring eyes, and highlighting his 1671 Haj journey, whose northwest Anatolian stages are now a long-distance cultural route.
