  • 07/04/2022

From traditional Turkish tea to the beautiful Hagia Sophia, Turkey is known for a rich collection of both oriental and European characteristics. Carpets, hammams, and bazaars, as well as places like Istanbul and Cappadocia and sweet foods like Turkish delights and baklava, are all popular. 

Istanbul is the most popular tourist destination in Turkey. After all, it is home to world-famous landmarks including as the Hagia Sophia and shopping destinations such as the Grand Bazaar. Because of its prominence, many people mistake Istanbul for Turkey's capital. 

The Grand Bazaar is regarded as one of the world's largest markets. It provides a diverse range of items as a result of this: it houses over 4,000 stores and serves about half a million consumers everyday.

Ephesus was a major trading hub. Tourists now flock to the city to marvel at the ancient site, which is revered by the Christian community. 

Many people think Mount Ararat was the first mountain to appear after the Great Flood (as depicted in the Bible tale of Noah's Ark). Mount Ararat, Turkey's highest mountain, stands 16,854 feet tall and is snow-capped in all its majesty. 

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk ,Turkey's well-known founding father served as the country's first president. From 1923 until his death in 1938, he was the President of the United States. 

The Galata Bridge is one of Turkey's most recognized sights, as seen by its appearance on postcards and in works of art. It is a renowned tourist attraction in Istanbul since it spans the Golden Horn.

With its cave dwellings and cobblestoned roads, Cappadocia is a storybook village. Cappadocia's hot air balloons, however, are the most popular - they float at daybreak, creating a magnificent spectacle of brilliant and multicolored aircraft against the spectacular orange sky.
