Before I came to Turkey, I always thought that Turkey was a war-torn country, and it was "the crossroads of Eastern and Western civilizations". This kind of view seemed to be the protagonist in East and West. Turkey was just an aisle or intersection, but this trip told me that this is not the case. Turkey itself is a huge and independent civilization, with Islam behind 1.6 billion people.
Some people say that if you stay in Istanbul for a day, you will write a poem; for a week, you will write a book; if you stay for a year, you can't write anything. Believe me, every city has such a pedestrian street, but I prefer the independent street of Istanbul.
Baidu said: Independence Avenue is known as the "Sweet Avenue" of Istanbul, starting in the medieval Genoa community near the Galata Tower, ending in Taksim Meydan?, this area in All Ottoman The political, economic, and cultural life of the empire occupies an important position.
Istanbul Independence Avenue is an elegant pedestrian street that presents a state of prosperity. Istanbul in history is a commercial center. Commodities from the Asian Silk Road and the Middle East and Europe are brought together into a huge and rich trading center, first as a distribution center for commodities, and then become a large and rapidly growing commercial center.
When I went to Shierqi, I just heard that the hot air balloon in Turkey is very good, but there are hot air balloons in many places, so the idea of going to Turkey is intermittent and has not been acted on. Of course, before departure, I thought that if it were not for Kappa's hot air balloon, the Mediterranean paraglider, the romance of the Aegean Sea, and the speciality across Eurasia, I am afraid that I would not go to Turkey?
There are a lot of old names on this road. Even the floor is covered with old tiles. The ceiling of the walls is decorated like a palace with crystal lamps. This is a few kilometers away from the old roads. Beautiful.
Walking on the Independence Street, you can intuitively feel the openness and tolerance of Turkey as a secularized country.
This street rarely sees women wearing headscarves. People are dressed in a different way than European countries.
