Jason Goodwin decided to approach his beloved and dreamed of Istanbul in a very special way. This book caught my eye because I've been enjoying the Yashim/Istanbul mystery series by J. Goodwin so much. as well as the fact that we had just returned from visitng Prague.
Though classified as a travel book, On Foot to the Golden Horn could just as easily fall under history. Jason Goodwin has produced a wonderfully inventive travel book, one in which Istanbul is the ultimate goal. Don't roll your eyes: it is the story of an incredible voyage, full of encounters with fascinating people and landscapes. But its backdrop is one of the most important historical moments of the late 20th century-Eastern Europe at the beginning of the 1990s. Wanting to have some sort of experience of what was it was like to visit such a distant goal in the past, as well as to tour Central Europe, he and two friends walk there!

From non-fiction to novel ideas. The writer’s first book on Istanbul was On Foot to the Golden Horn: A Walk to Istanbul, documenting his six-month journey from Poland to Turkey in the early 1990s. In the first half of the walk going down to Hungary, you felt was about places the Russians and the Germans had always contested. But when you got to Hungary, and then Transylvania, Romania, and Bulgaria, there was another influenc. ou knew you’d come into the orbit of something else, and the story there was between the Austrians and the Ottomans.
