Turkey is a very lovely country which is located in Asia and Europe as well. The capital of Turkey is Ankara and the official language is Turkish but various other languages are also spoken in this country like Kurmanji, Zaza, laj, Bosnian, Syrian Arabic and many more. If you love travelling then you would love to visit Turkey. Here are a few Great places which I recommend to visit in Turkey.
Best 5 In Turkey
Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and one of the largest city in the world. It’s the city that straddles two continents at once. The Bosphorus Strait acts like a continental border, splitting the city into two halves—European and Asian. Istanbul is the center city of Television and Film industry of Turkey. If you will go to visit this city then don’t forget to visit Ottoman Topkapi Palace, the beautiful Hagia Sophia with its intricate mosaics, and the underground Basilica Cistern. You can shop at Grand Bazar, take a cruise down the Bosphorus, say a prayer at the Blue Mosque and soak in the cityscape from the Galata tower.
It is the capital of Turkey as well as the second largest city after Istanbul. Ankara is a quieter version of Istanbul. Buğra Gülsoy, the actor who plays Guney in Kuzey Guney, was born here. He is among the many celebrities who call this city home. This place never bores its visitors. Here you can visit the Anıtkabir, which is the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, he was the founder of Turkey. There is no wonder why this structure dominates the city’s skyline. If you want a panoramic view of the city, head to the Ankara Citadel located in the Ulus Bentderesi District of the Old Quarter. While you are here, go for a walk on the cobblestone alleys of the quarter and take in the quaint Ottoman houses. At the other end of the spectrum is Kizilay Square, with buzzing cafes and restaurants.
Trabzon is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeast Turkey. You would love to visit Trabzon because it offers two in one fun. It is located by the Black Sea in north-eastern Turkey and has the Pontic Mountains pass through it; this creates a hill station-like ambiance. The region offers a different take on Turkey, one that’s sprinkled with bouts of silence. Explore the Sumela Monastery, a Greek Orthodox Ministry built in the year 346 AD. Spend a night near the Uzun Göl or Long Lake, enjoy a sunset over the Black Sea at Boztepe, and pay respects to the nation’s founding father at the Trabzon Ataturk Kosku museum. Trabzon also has its own Hagia Sophia that’s a little different from the one in Istanbul!
Cappadocia is the city knows for hot air balloons. If you look up and see colorful hot air balloons in the sky, well you know you are in Cappadocia. The best view from one of these balloons is that of the UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed Goreme Open Air Museum, which is home to rock-cut churches that once sheltered Byzantine monks. Equally fascinating are the region’s 36 underground cities. The most prominent one being the Kaymakli Underground City. Once you’re done touring the sights in Istanbul and Ankara, there are direct flights that connect you to this city in the central Anatolian region of Turkey. You can visit the various pottery shops, the Pasabag, and Devrent Valley, and even check into a cave hotel.
The star of the Turkish Riviera, Bodrum, is a world-famous getaway for beach lovers. The city sits by the Aegean Sea and offers a fun Mediterranean vibe to visitors. Its enviable location makes many tourists through the numerous cafes, restaurants, and luxury hotels that line its azure coastline every summer. Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ, who plays the role of Kuzey in Turkey’s most popular show, holidays here often! You could visit Bodrum Castle, the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, the ancient Bodrum Theatre, and Myndos Gate or simply recline on the beach and hope to run into him.
