"Mimar Sinan is one of the best architects in the history of the world. We have not been able to give him proper credit, either through understanding or through introducing him to the modern world. We have done so much for our architecture but the impact on our culture and art we still need to understand. Turkey is undergoing a new phase in tourism, and so we need to show the new routes that are part of our culture. This is one of the first conscious routes that is part of the new conscious tourism for Turkey".
