interesting interesting ... i wanted to ask whether it is true or not that women are limited in rights over there... cause i remember reading a travelogue where the author says that women are not aloud to enter a bar. Is there a big gap in the mentality of the Turkish people and lets say Europeans?
it is such a big lie that women are not allowed to enter a bar. Women who are at least at the age of 18 can enter a bar. So there is no mentality gap in turkey. Turkish people are so welcoming and understanding.Moreover in turkey everybody has the same rights.So,Some europans are so jealous of Turkey and they dont hesitate in writing stupid things about Turkey and our culture.Everyone can come turkey and enjoy themselves in every way they want .

hi from Turkey,
well in fact there's no restriction in any way.. you can always enter to any bar you like whether you're man.. woman or none.. istanbul is a real! multicultural city by all means.. you can find many different cultural community (higher percent in muslim belief thou) and still living in peace and believing that under the democratic regulations its the only way to get bonded in a crowded social environment (12m people avg population)
you should come and take a visit.. and see by yourself.. as commented here by another lad here Turkish people are indeed welcoming in all over the country..
Turkey is indeed a symbiosis of different cultures! it's a great place to travel to! i know pretty much about it's history, but i know almost nothing about it's traditional cuisine.can someone help with that?
