Holidays In Turkey
Turkey is a beautiful country located on the Anatolian peninsula and has now become a very popular holiday destination due to its being relatively close to mainland Europe, virtually guaranteed weather, and good value for money.
When planning a holiday to Turkey many people choose to go to Istanbul, which is the largest city in Turkey and a ‘must-see’ attraction there is the Kariye Museum. This museum is actually an 11th-century church, which has absolutely gorgeous mosaics that tell different stories of the amazing life of Jesus. Many guests recommend having a guidebook when visiting this church, as there are so many mosaics, each one telling its own story. Another must-see attraction in Istanbul is the Istanbul Archeological Museum. This museum is home to a large collection of artifacts from Rome and Greece and is in fact several museums combined into one.
During their stay, many visitors choose to go to the city of Antalya. This city is in the southwestern part of Turkey along the breathtaking Mediterranean coast. Antalya has many beautiful beaches for visitors to enjoy and the Duden waterfalls are another tourist attraction favorite. Being able to walk under the falls and viewing the water from the other side is a once in a lifetime experience that visitors won’t want to miss, which is why many people pack a picnic and spend a whole day at the falls. Antalya is also home to some of the best diving in the world. Both new and experienced divers are welcome and one shall not leave disappointed.
Another must-see city, when going to Turkey, is Marmaris. The Dalyan Mud Bath is something everyone should try when visiting. Many people believe that these mud baths have healing properties. Even if tourists don’t believe this they still have a great time bathing in the mud. The summers in Marmaris are absolutely gorgeous and for young travellers Marmaris also offers great nightlife as well. For those tarvelling as a family, the AquaDream Water Park in Marmaris is a great place for both parents and children alike to have fun. With many thrilling waterslides and a wave pool and a smaller kid’s pool for younger children to enjoy, there is something for any age.
