Tulips in Istanbul
The 2nd International Istanbul Tulip Festival will be held in Istanbul between April 7th-15th. Many parks of the city, especially Emirgan Park, will be home of this festivity. This year, the Metropolitan Municipality has planted over 8 million tulips all over the city and it will be a colorful festival both for the citizens and foreign visitors. Tulips will be enjoyed until mid-May.

Since many centuries, Tulip was produced in Turkey and it was introduced to Europe. Tulip motifs were always used in clothing and tiles and today it became the symbol of Turkey.
