Ordu-Bazaar — A Turkic “City On Wheels”

Contemporaries of the Golden Horde and the Crimean Khanate often described the nomadic lifestyle of the Turkic peoples of the Northern Black Sea region. The nomadic headquarters of the khans was called Ordu-bazaar. Such nomadic towns became a phenomenon and the pinnacle of the development of nomadic civilization. Each Ordu-bazaars had its own army, administration, tax, financial and judicial system. Based on materials from A. Stepanchenko.
