I would say, April is the best month to visit Turkey. The weather is perfect. It is a long day of sunny days and a temperature is between 19 to 20 degree all day. Exactly perfect.
Do you know that Tulips is originally come from Istanbul, Turkey and not from Holland?? – Yes, It is from Antolia, Turkey. Until in the 16th century Tulip is introduced to western Europe. The ambassador of Constantinople (well known as Istanbul) send Tulip bulbs as a gift to the queen of Holland in 1587. Afterward, Leiden, a botanical researcher from Vienna, was hire to grown Tulip in Holland. Ever since, Tulip gains its popularity that is known until today.
These days, Turkey’s government try to introduce Tulip again by creating a Tulip festival every year on April. When I was there, Tulip was everywhere. It was so pretty…
While I was in Istanbul, I visited some beautiful historical building in the city: Blue Mosque or known also as Sultan Ahmed mosque, Hagia Sophia’s church, taken Bosporus trip by cruise and grand bazaar (off course;D)
Blue mosque or well known as mosque of Sultan Ahmet I is one of the top sights in this historic city. It is located inside a great place area, in an old Istanbul.
Another interesting place to visit is Hagia sophia or asyasofya. It is a church that is turned to be a mosque. This is one of the most greatest historical building in the world.
Are you thirsty, try this fresh orange juice in front of the museum…
