In the footsteps of the Turks – 2.

For those who wish to walk around the Castle District, alond the city walls and bastions, in the southern part of the district, just between the Aranyszarvas Restaurant and the Várkert Gardens, on the hillside, they can spot some  Turkish tombstones, topped with a turban, fenced around under some trees. Influences of the Ottoman (or Turkish) past linger in the Hungarian culture in the form of the Turkish baths and drinking coffee.
