Overview

Shiny coasts, blue sea, bazaars, kebab, rugs and cultural heritage would be a good description of Turkey. So hop on a train to come and see!

The national railway company of Turkey is Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Devlet Demiryolları (TCDD). Turkey has an extensive railway network comprising over 10,000 km of railway tracks. There is high speed train service between main cities of Ankara and Istanbul. There are international trains linking Turkey to neighbouring countries such as Bulgaria and Greece.

Cityscape

Visit Istanbul, its Topkaki palace, the blue mosque, the archaeological museum, and feast your eyes with the majestic view of the Bosphorus. Then, take a train to Ankara and wow in front of the numerous ruins and buildings dating back to Antiquity, or go to the ancient quarter to walk around the crammed-together houses.

Landscape

In central Anatolia, enjoy a hot-air balloon flight to overview the moonscape of Cappadocia. You feel ill at ease in the air? Why don’t you experience a white-water rafting in the Dalaman River? It will enable you to discover the landscapes of Turkey in an original way!

Take Home

You will be spoiled for choice exploring Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar, known as the biggest market in the world! Or you can go to the department stores in Istiklal Caddesi or to upmarket Nisantasi, to find some cut-price fashion goods and clothing.

    "The train departed on time and arrived on time. The conductor was polite and multilingual. The only issue was that someone was sitting in my allocated seat but that did not bother me as there were other seats available that had the same comfort level. "

    "Would thoroughly recommend travelling by train from Paris to London. Train was easy to access, comfortable and affordable. The weather conditions delayed departure time however that was unavoidable. First class carriage was very comfortable and the breakfast served was an unexpected delight. Will certainly repeat this experience in the future. "
