Da Vinci Golden Horn design to become reality, says Turkish PM
AA PhotoA bridge project once planned out by Leonardo Da Vinci for the Golden Horn will soon become reality, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said today during a ceremony to celebrate the arrival of the first water pumped from the Bosphorus into the Golden Horn, daily Hürriyet has reported.
"Leonardo Da Vinci had a bridge project regarding the Golden Horn," Erdoğan said. "Once [that bridge] is built there, we will have the chance to walk from one side of Halic to the other."
The bridge was reportedly designed by Da Vinci in the 16th century, but the design was never used for an actual project.
