I visited Istanbul three years ago . This visit was really spontaneous . The goal of my trip was to celebrate my 21st birthday . I intended to travel for a week but i got only three days off .
I don’t remember the exact names of the places where i went . I visited Istanbul in the end of November and it was really cold . I didn’t take warm clothes . I remember that all the time i froze .
I’d like to say that Istanbul is very different from European cities . Istanbul is a very special city . The culture , the food , the people , the environment are all different .
First of all , i must say that i like the architecture .
The people are very pleasant . When i shopped the sellers went out and greeted me .
What was also really cool are the stands in the streets . Every day i bought nuts , corn and pomegranate juice there .
I must tell about the special tea that is served everywhere . I liked more the way the tea was served than the tea itself . ( Let’s say i like coffee more ) .
I think the turkish sweets are also very delicious .
I was inspired by ” Grand Bazar “ . A huge place . You can find so many things there . I highly recommended to visit this magic place .
