Fact of the Day: Batman City

In Turkey there is a city and province known as Batman. Though it has nothing to do with the super-hero but apparently got its name from a nearby river.

I visited Turkey several years ago when I was still traveling. I did not care for it. If I saw this area, did not know it.
