What you'll do

The place I’m looking forward to meet you is the entrance of a great park in my district of Selcuklu, which has a size larger than 100,000 square meters. This mighty venue offers its visitors the most iconic figures of the Seljuks and the other Turkish states; including miniatures of the ancient buildings, a twelve thousand square meter pond and Bosphorus mansions by its shore, ancient harbor inside the ramparts, a lighthouse, a mill, the Namazgah fountain, an Ottoman coffee shop, large gardens with different themes and an Ottoman street with the exotic shops and workshops. Such a long description for an activity place comes with a long track to discover; we will have about 2,5 km / 1 hour to walk, shoot beautiful photos and talk about all the related history. The different sections of the park will create us the chance to touch on different subjects and angles about the past. We also have 4 stops for refreshment and experimenting on our way: The pottery, the marbling art shop and the weaving shop are the 3 workshops we plan to visit are in the Ottoman street. And the Ottoman coffee shop by the shore of the big pond is waiting for us to rest and taste the best. We may arrange these 4 stops as we like to take our route, the order is not strict.

Mustafa

I work in the city hospital as a pharmacist, and I do love spending my time in my city, rediscovering the deep culture and history it serves to us. Thanks to my flexible work schedule, I find plenty of time to spend around these beautiful places with the people I love. I travelled several places in Europe and I always found discovering the places around exciting with the local experts. It was always a priority to book for those experiences before I arrive to my destination. In that respect I feel I have a good sense of anticipating the needs and expectations of the visitors to my city.

What's included

Food
Turkish delight with dried nuts and fruits are going to be served with the Turkish coffee we order
Drinks
You may taste the Ottoman sherbet when we first meet and sit in a camellia. And during our tour you will have a chance to…

Where you'll be

In the Pottery, you will make a pot with the local master and take it away while you go. In the Marbling Art Shop, you will prepare a basic level symbol (like a flower) and again, take your piece of art with you. In the Weaving Shop, you will experience weaving on the original old machine for some time. And in the Ottoman coffee shop you may choose from the 14 different kinds of Turkish coffee on the list that goes best with your taste!

More tips
