A teenage boy skateboards in Barbaros Square, a popular skating destination on the Bosphorus. In the Square, just next to the Istanbul Naval Museum, is a monument in honor of Hayreddin Barbarossa (Redbeard), a renowned Ottoman fleet admiral. However, in his early life, Barbarossa was a Barbary pirate who ravaged the sea. Later, as an admiral, he built a great Ottoman navy that gained supremacy in the Mediterranean, solidified by the Preveza Victory in 1538 against the Christian Alliance (Venice, Spain and Portugal, under the leadership of the Papacy and Pope Paul III).
