Feel the spring at Istanbul Tulip Festival with TravelPapa!

After the long and cold winter, it’s quite pleasant to start feeling the beginning of spring, when the days are starting to get longer, the sun shines brighter and flowers are starting to blossom.

If you are planning to go on a trip soon, while all the cities of the world are starting to wake up, shine and blossom, just think about visiting Turkey during the trip and TravelPapa will tell you why.

The wonderful Istanbul Tulip Festival has been held in the Turkish capital, beginning from the spring of 2005 and, since then, it has turned into an absolutely picturesque and bright local tradition. During the whole March people are planting hundreds and hundreds of flowers all around the city: on the lawns, in the flowers beds, in the parks or in the streets, creating the most unbelievable compositions around the trees and so on, so that the city would literally “sink” in flowers on the 1st of April, when the fascinating Istanbul Tulip Festival begins.

The most attentive travelers may know that tulips are considered one of the Turkish symbols, as they may be literally met just all over the country, starting from the traditional local hand-made carpets and to the numerous city fences. That’s why Istanbul decided to prove to its foreign guests that the best tulips are grown exactly on the territory of Turkey that’s why this many-colored tradition is being carefully kept for so many years already.

The main events of the festival are usually held on the territory of Emirgan Park, which is considered by the way the largest park in the whole city. About two million of the most varied tulips are planted on the territory of the park, forming unusual compositions and even the whole pictures!

Istanbul Tulip Festival is held annually starting from the 1st of April and till the very end of the month.

You still have plenty of time to see this blossoming beauty with your own eyes during your spring holiday!
