Umayyad Mosque...

Damascus is a city from a fairy tale where you forget all the prejudices you had the moment you start to walk on it's streets. After you pass by all the gorgeous food stands in the magical shopping arcade Souq al-Hamidiyya on your way to Christian and Jewish Quarters you find yourself in front of the magnificent Minaret of Qaitbay of Umayyad Mosque. The mosque is surrounded by crowded streets, Roman ruins, shops and street vendors. The scene is simply unbelievable... Take a deep breath and just walk in the court of the mosque where you can isolate yourself entirely from the city with hundreds of believers for a few quite minutes...
