The Greek Lycee, Özel Fener Rum Lisesi

The towering castle-like burgundy-brick building located behind the walls ahead is the Greek Lycee of Fener. The structure you see, one of the most prominent elements on the skyline of the Golden Horn, dates back to 1881, but the school itself has its roots in Byzantine Constantinople. Then, and in the years that followed, it was a place of education for high-class Greek and Bulgarian youths as well as Wallachian and Moldovian princes.
