A museum tour on a trip is most often associated with groups of people, dull exhibits, and a feeling of missing out on significant “outdoor” landmarks. Sure, that is not true, especially when you are in such a unique city in every aspect as Istanbul, where museums strike with their concepts just as well.
According to stereotypes, New Year’s Eve in Istanbul is pure boredom since it is marked with greyness and absence of snow. OUTLOOK by experience checked whether it is true, and now we are sharing our impressions. If we say that this holiday is celebrated in Turkey the same as in Europe or North America, it would be not quite fair.
Judging by the reviews of the majority of tourists who visited Istanbul, many of them did not reach Asian part of the main Turkish metropolis, or did not have a proper walk there. The best case, they just saw SabihaGökçen International Airport and ferry docks, a destination of leisure cruses from Europe, where on the way one can feed with bread seagulls swooping overhead.
Each person has a moment or event that is unforgettable for lifetime. My trip to Cappadocia and a hot air balloon flight is one of the most breath-taking experiences I have ever had. That is why I would like to share my impressions with you.
If all the magnificent Istanbul is considered as the heart of regional trade, one of its most luxurious streets, Bagdad Avenue, is, certainly, the main artery. Having appeared there, even rejecting shopping with the whole heart, one feels hardship while trying to keep him balanced and not succumb to temptation to go to the ships and markets. Even though, apart from that, there is something to do here.
Summer is up to come very soon which means that it is time to plan a vacation, pack your bags and make up a list of must visit destinations.

If you are one of these people, then breath out with relief.
In this day and age, it is difficult to surprise anyone, especially an urban resident, with some large department store or market, since nowadays one can buy everything from a humble convenience store next door.

Eastern cities are hard to imagine without a huge number of the commercial places. It is in the genes of the local citizens to sell and buy regardless their age and status.

It is hard to imagine more different nations than citizens of Turkey and Poland. Their variety is reflected in everything, from religion to culinary traditions. Nevertheless, they get on well during more than 150 years in the suburbs of Istambul. We would like to talk about this unique neighbourhood in the rubric 'ghetto in the world'.
Because of different reasons, mainly due to its travel population and size, Istanbul is perceived by the majority of tourists, even by those who had been to Turkey, as the capital of this country even though it is verily Ankara. We are going to talk about this city that is so Turkish and international simultaneously.
Among tourists, especially those from Europe, it is difficult to find people who have not enjoyed vacation in sunny and hospitable Turkey at least once, so the prices at holiday destinations are more or less known. However, what awaits those who opted for "another Turkey" and went to see the magnificent Istanbul, we would like toexplainwith the example of 10 dollars.
