Turkey is an amazing country with touristic beauties in every corner of it. You like beach holidays? There are thousands of them. You like cultural holidays? The country is full of ancient ruins. You just like to eat the cultural food, relax and chill? Turkish food is very suitable for that. So here are 4 most visited places in Turkey:
Safranbolu Old Houses
Maybe you have seen the pictures of an old Ottoman town’s houses only a few times, but this unknown place has one of the best old towns in Turkey. Unchanged little streets with old Ottoman houses on both sides are great for a walk in Ottoman times. Plus, they have a special type of Turkish delight made of “safran”.
The name may not mean anything to you, but in Turkish it literally means “cotton castle” which basically says a castle made out of cotton. This name was given to the place thanks to its natural white travertines full of heathy thermal water. This magical place is one of its kind.
Maybe you both like a beach and a cultural holiday. Alacati is the perfect spot for this. Warm Aegean Sea with soft sand on the side will be your swimming spot, while the old houses and the cute little town will provide you the space needed for a cozy chat with friends. Do eat some of the fish dishes and add olive oil to everything you eat.
