  • Istanbul

    It is necessary to consider that the weather on the New Year in Istanbul is unstable, sleet falls and a cold wind blows. At best, you can expect a pleasant snow and sun at + 10 ° C. We advise to make several routes in case of different weather: on a fine day walk through iconic locations – Istiklal Street, Taksim Square, Galata bridge with a trip along the Bosphorus; in rainy – visit museums, mosques, shopping centers.

    But how to celebrate the New Year. Moment of transition December 31 at 1 January tourists usually meet on the Galata bridge with fireworks or book a table in one of the restaurants (in the Sultanahmet area). By the way, January 1 is a non-working day.

    In Alanya, the holiday atmosphere is already felt in December: a big tree is set on the embankment, and expats are satisfied Christmas market. On the very New Year’s Eve the municipality conducts fireworks, and fun in local cafes and bars continues until in the morning.

    Kemer will be fun only if you drive to a large hotel of 5 stars, arranging a festive show. Walk there especially nowhere. Some do not advise to go there also because darkens faster than in other Mediterranean cities, and when it rains – streams run down from the mountains, warming.

    Belek offers the most decent hotels, where You can relax in the winter. We will tell about them below. Besides, the resort is located near Antalya – a large city that does not hibernates.

    In Side, as in Kemer, is to celebrate the holiday only in a good hotel with a program – and these are open in winter Little. Otherwise, it’s boring here, as Side is even called a city complicated.

    But Antalya is also suitable for tourists who are ready. lay out from 100k for the tour with the New Year in the hotel (and the best “sub-resort” for this – Lara), and for budget vacationers. About shopping the center of Migros, on the square of the singing fountains, are preparing concert programs. After the chimes, people walk along illuminated streets and drop in at city cafes.
