Turkey Photo Gallery

I am in love with Turkey; I’ve studied the language and been there twice so far. I think Turkey had something to offer to tourists and travellers of all kinds. The country is full of wonderful natural sights and urban chaos, a mix of the religious and the liberals, delicious food and thousands of years of history. There are plenty of tour operators as well as infinite options for do-it-yourself types.

Pictures that will make you want to travel to Turkey right now!


Grand Mosques of Turkey

From the majestic Blue Mosque of Istanbul to the humble Whirling Dervish Lodge of Konya, places of worship exist in various shapes and sizes.


Unique natural wonders

From a mountain covered in Calcium (Pamukkale), to the bizarrely extraterrestrial formations in Cappadocia, to rock cliffs that breathe fire (Chimera), and more.

Turkish Food!

Turkish cuisine is diverse and very delicious.


Turkish Mediterranean Coast

I’ve been to a few of the beautiful Mediterranean coastal cities: Izmir, Kuşadası, Fethiye, Kaş, and Antalya.


Adventure and Outdoor Activities

With a wide variety of terrain, there are lots of activities to do in Turkey.


Life in Cities

Pictures of Turkish cities and towns. People going about their routine business.

Places to see:

Istanbul

Istanbul is where the life of Turkey is. The city only gets better with time.


Konya

Home to the Whirling Dervishes and Sufi shrines.


Pamukkale

Snow white travertines formed from calcium rich spring water.


Kaş – Myra – Demre

Touristy Kaş, a port town across from the Greek island of Rhodes, visiting the St. Nicholas (Santa Claus) Church at Demre, and checking out the Lycian tombs at Myra


Fethiye

Small coastal city with a neat old town and a neat beach to watch sunsets from.


Cappadocia

Fairy chimneys, cave houses, and hot air balloon rides in this region that looks from another planet.


Selçuk, Ephesus, and Şirince

A small Turkish city, an abandoned tourist village, and ancient Roman ruins. Three places with absolutely nothing in common except being right next to each other.


Antalya

Coastal city with tons of places to explore in the neighbourhood.


Olympos / Çıralı

Living in tree houses and hiking to Yanartaş, the flaming rocks of Chimera.


Izmir

Turkey’s supposedly most progressive town on the Mediterranean coast.
