|Tulip in the Turkey's logo|
Why TULIP festival?
Today many people associate tulips with Holland, however tulips came to Holland from the Ottoman Empire. The first tulips were cultivated by Turks already in 1000 AD. Tulip is also a turistic symbol of Turkey.
Between April 4 - 19th, 34th Istanbul Film Festival is taking place. Besides movie screenings, you can also attend movie lessons and discussions. More info.

|Travel around the city by boat|
- Before arrival, check if you need visa for Turkey. Some citizens do need it and most of you can order it online. You can still get visa on arrival, but eVisa will help you save time and money!
- Buy a travel Istanbul kart. It costs about 10 TL. After this, you are required to top it up and you can use it to move around the city easily. It works with metro, tram, metrobus, ferries, funicular, etc. Here is more info in English. With Istanbul kart you can travel cheaper. Multiple can use the same card. You can also use it to pay the public toilets with it :)
Almost 12 hours without electricity. Somewhere we finally have it, but in some parts the electricity is coming and going. Some district of Istanbul are still without electricity: as you can see at the photo, the hill next to us is totally dark.
According to the media, trains, metro and tram are working again.
Since 10:30 am almost all Turkey is without electricity. In Istanbul, metro and tram lines are out of order due to electricity cut. The reason is still unknown.
