Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara are also the most visited cities in the country. Here are some of the most important sights in these cities for your loved ones.
Places of Interest in Turkey: Istanbul
Istanbul is one of the world’s major metropolises built by various empires over the centuries as a bridge between Asia and Europe. It was once a Byzantine colony and capital, and under Ottoman rule it maintained its status as the heart of the empire. Nowadays, Istanbul’s spectacular remnants of the city’s magnificent history attract many tourists.

1. Mosque or Sophia
The mosque was completed in 536 AD during the Byzantine Empire and was an example of the wealth and ability of the empire. In the 20th century, the Sofia became a museum and is now one of Istanbul’s most famous sights. This orthodox church is famous for its domes, its huge nave and its golden mosaics.

2. Topkapi Palace
The magnificent palace was first built by King Mehmet in the 15th century, where Ottoman sultans ruled until the 19th century. Topkapi Palace is a reminder of Islamic art in ancient times. Large courtyards with translucent tiles, paving with beautiful motifs, rooms decorated with traditional Ottoman ornamentation are among the beauties of this palace. This palace is another place of worship in Turkey, with lots of places to visit, all of which will make your day a full one.
Places of Interest in Turkey: Izmir
Izmir is also one of the most attractive and touristy cities of Turkey that hosts many tourists from around the world every year. Sights of Izmir are very beautiful and we intend to introduce you to some of the historical tourist sites of this city.

1. Acropolis Pergamon
Pergamon Acropolis is another of Turkey’s sights, located in the town of Izmir, on top of a hill overlooking the modern city of Bergama, one of Turkey’s ancient cities. The area is a popular tourist destination due to its proximity to the ruins of the ancient city of Pergamon and has about 60,000 inhabitants. It dates back to the Ottoman, Roman and Hellenistic periods, which was occupied by the Ottomans from the 14th century onwards.

2. Agora
Agora is also one of the most spectacular sites in Turkey dating back to the late fourth century BC. There is an ancient furnace called Smyrna in the area that was destroyed in an earthquake in 178, but was rebuilt after some time by Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius.

3. St. Polycarp’s Church
Built in the early 17th century, the Catholic Church is one of the oldest Christian temples in Turkey that is still active and now one of Turkey’s most historic sites. The fortitude and persistence of this church was miraculous and incredible after the 1922 fire that destroyed all the buildings around it. All the walls of the church were covered in 19th-century paintings by a local architect, Raymond Charles Pierre, who depicted himself in a wall painting of St. Paul’s.
Attractions in Ankara
After Istanbul, Ankara is one of the most touristy cities in Turkey, with many tourist attractions. Here are some of Ankara’s sights.

1. Atacule
Opened in 1989, Atakule is a 410-meter communications and observation tower. Atta means ‘ancestor’ and ‘cole’ means tower. Built by the order of Ataturk, the founder and first president of the Turkish Republic, the tower is one of Ankara’s most important sights.

2. The tomb of Anit Kabir
Anit Kabir is the tomb of the first and second presidents of Turkey. This beautiful and historic monument attracts not only tourists but also many historians and architects every year. The tomb, which houses the Atatürk Museum and the War of Independence, houses a vast collection of paintings and exhibitions. This section is divided into four sections, one is the Lions Road, a long sidewalk where you can watch the Turkish soldiers in the parade. The other is the Peace Park.
