Scutari reflects the legendary work of Florence Nightingale in the Selimiye Barracks also known as Scutari Barracks.  It was a Turkish Army barracks located in Scutari, district on the Asian part of Istanbul, Turkey. 

On 4 November 1854, Florence Nightingale arrived in Scutari with 37 volunteer nurses. They cared for thousands of wounded and infected soldiers until she returned home in the summer of 1856, as a heroine.

Around 6,000 english soldiers died in the Selimiye Barracks during the war, mostly as the result of cholera epidemic. The dead were buried at a plot next to the barracks, which became later the Haydarpaşa Cemetery.
