The local Istanbul government launched the first annual tulip festival in April 2006. Literally millions of tulips were planted in Istanbul’s parks, avenues, traffic roundabouts and…really just about anywhere there was open ground. In the first year of the festival a total of 30 million tulips were used. The famous tulip festival in Istanbul is a great time to visit this ancient city.

Everywhere you look around this fabulous city you will see the glorious spring flower festival with brilliant splashes of colour adding life to the city. Beginning in April, you can spot spring flowers literally everywhere. Over 125 different species of tulips were planted across the city.
For a real treat one should visit...
