Longest “Uzungöl” Lake – Turkey

Uzungöl Turkey.jpg

The lake Uzungöl (“The Long Lake”) is situated to the south of the city Trabzon and is one of the most picturesque places especially due to its stunning location in the valley. Interestingly it was located on the historical Silk Road and hence became a melting pot of religions, languages and culture for centuries and a trade gateway to Persia in the southeast and the Caucasus to the northeast.
