Turkey

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.

Food & Drink

Each region of Turkey provides its own speciality. In Kanlica, an ancient village of fishermen in a Bosphorus bay try the famous yogurt. From Istanbul, you will need a nearly 6 hour’s trip in the 6 Eylül Ekspres train to enjoy Izmir and its Moorish kadinbudu, a rice and beef meal.

New Perspective

Finally, laze in a steamy Turkish bath and relax while you are waiting for a scrub and a beneficial massage.
