Top Ten Best Cities In Turkey

The Top Ten Best Cities In Turkey

1 Istanbul Istanbul, formerly known as Byzantium and Constantinople, is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural and historic center.

Istanbul is a very historical place and I love historical places.

my city! - LumiNyte

I had no idea that Istanbul is not the capital of Turkey. But even though it's a high population city, it is the best city in Turkey to visit and to live in. Especially that big mosque you can already see from the skyline.

So beautiful! I've travelled to a lot of cities, including Berlin, Rome, Venice, Vienna, etc... They are awesome too, but nothing can beat Istanbul.

2 Izmir

Love the food, love the weather, love everything

Good but not good enough

It is big enough for opportunities but not that stressful

Mix city of the religions

3 Ankara

Agood quote bout Ankara "There are two things to be done in Ankara. Either you study, or you fall in love".

I just like all of them. Turkey is so amazing!

Underrated city.

4 Bursa

It is definitely better than Ankara.

And amazing city! Green, historical. It was once the capital of Ottoman Empire. In my opinion, Bursa should come after Istanbul.

5 Adana

Weather, agriculture and food. Someone like hot.

Its essentially your average poor village. No biggie!

Not best in turkey, best in the world!

Cultural city, good food!

6 Antalya

Better life,with better people

There are a lot of touristic places and there are a lot of things to do. Entertainement, Culture, Fun, Sea, Sun, Sand... Viva Antalya!

Best city in the world according to the one of the best leader ever lived...

Great place to live.

11 Eskisehir

The best and the safest and the most colourful and the funniest city in Turkey. It shouldn't be 13th, it must be 1st...

12 Trabzon

Clean and developed city. Awesome views everywhere

Combination of blue and green

There is no words to describe the is wonderful.

19 Sinop
20 Bodrum
21 Mardin

22 Çorum

Centre of earth!

23 Bayburt

BAYBURT is the most developed city in Turkey. It has the most enlightened population and has over 10,000 years of history. It is a hub for technology and innovation with a wealthy, openminded society. Bayburt should be #1

Probably, it's one of the biggest opponents of Monowi, Nebraska. Still, they have a good art museum.

24 Cankiri

It is ideal for people who wants to be alone in the nature with its snow covered high mountains for the half of the year; forests covering its one third lands; plateaus appropriate for camping, caravans, horseback riding, photography and hunting and such touristic activities; rich thermal springs and mineral springs, cultural values of centuries mingle with the tenderness and traditional hospitality of the citizens.

Best city probably

25 Denizli

Very surprised that Denizli wasn't on the top 10 list! Pamukkale (Cotton Castle) is there, one of the 7 wonders of the world. Despite all its beauty, it is a very poorly introduced city of a poorly introduced country. Turkish people could do a lot better than that! I am lucky for having a chance to visit.
I think, Denizli people have the cutest accent.

27 Hopa

Beautiful mountains, a shoreline filled with soft pebbles and a loving community.
