Antalya – Where to Stay and What to Do?

If you consider spending your summer holiday in Antalya where to stay and what to do may be the first thing that you will ask, before you start making arrangements. Indeed, every time when we go to a new place, we may feel a bit apprehensive, although that's normal. We all want to have a good time and get the best out of our holidays.

Antalya

After a short stop in Aydin, it was time for me to move to Antalya, the next destination during my travel across Turkey, in July and August 2019. I originally planned to go there directly from Kusadasi, where I spent a week on the beach. I wanted to continue my summer holiday, but in a different place. Earlier this year when I planned this trip, I also considered Bodrum and Fethiye. But, I've been to both ...

Aydin

After a week on the beach in Kusadasi, it was time for me to move to the next destination during my travel across Turkey, in July and August 2019. I originally planned to go directly to Antalya, to spend some more time by the sea. But when I checked how to go there, I discovered that there were no direct buses from Kusadasi. First, I had to go to Aydin and then from Aydin to Antalya. So, as I had to stop ...

Kuşadasi

The main reason for my travel to Turkey in summer 2019 was to spend several weeks on the beach. But, that wasn't the only reason. I also wanted to explore Ottoman heritage. I've really only been to Istanbul in the past and, with my Italian friends, I also went to Bodrum and Fethiye in June 2007. However, that was a short trip with an accent on being by the sea. So, after Istanbul, Bursa and Izmir, it was ...

Ottoman Izmir

The main reason for my travel in Turkey was to spend several weeks on the beach, in some of Turkey's most popular summer resorts. However, the second reason was to explore the Ottoman heritage and that's why I went to Istanbul, Bursa and Konya. These three cities, but also some other ones, are the richest in Ottoman history. I've already written about Istanbul and Bursa. They are really the best places ...

Izmir

After three days in Bursa, it was time for me to move to Izmir, the next destination during my travel across Turkey in July and August 2019. It made sense to stop in Izmir as I was anyway moving in that direction. It was the middle of the summer and I wanted to spend some time in one of Turkey's beach resorts, on the Aegean Sea.

Rise of the Ottoman Empire – Bursa

By the beginning of the 15th century, Bursa had not been the capital city of the Ottoman Empire for 37 years. Sultan Murad I conquered Adrianople in 1363, renamed it in Edirne and moved the Ottoman capital there. The 14th century marks the birth and initial expansion of the Ottoman state, while the 15th century marks its rise to one of the biggest empires that the world has ever seen, that lasted for over ...

Birth of the Ottoman Empire – Bursa

Certainly, the best place to see the Ottoman heritage is Istanbul. It was the Ottoman capital for 470 years and evidently Ottoman rulers and other dignitaries of the empire left a mark on the city. The vast heritage is represented by numerous imperial and other mosques, bazaars, fountains and hans. But the Ottoman history in Istanbul starts only after Fatih Sultan Mehmed conquered it in 1453, while the ...

Bursa

After a week in Istanbul, it was time for me to move to Bursa, the second destination during my five-week travel across Turkey. When you choose to travel in Turkey the way I did, it's an obvious choice. Whether you go east or south of Istanbul, you have to pass either through or near Bursa.



ABOUT BURSA

I travelled across Turkey by bus, it was convenient and ...

Sultanate of Women

The Sultanate of Women is a fascinating period of time in Ottoman history. It started in approximately 1533, when Suleiman the Magnificent married the love of his life - Hürrem Sultan. It ended in 1683, with the death of Turhan Hatice Sultan.



WHAT IS THE SULTANATE OF WOMEN?

The Sultanate of Women was the time when wives and mothers of sultans ruled the ...
