Otağtepe Park in Istanbul

Istanbul is one of the best cities in the world for its enourmously wonderful panoromic views of Bosphorus. Otağtepe is one of those spots on earth you will never ever want to stop clicking your camera.
The park is located in Beykoz village at Asian side of İstanbul. You will notice at your right side  where the huge gorgeous flag of Turkey waving as you are crossing The Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge from Europe to Asia.
In history of Ottoman, the camp of army forces had been called as "OTAĞ" and hill means "Tepe" in Turkish. As you combine these two turkish words becomes "Otağtepe". Now, why this spot is called as Otağtepe? To find out read the historical brief please.  A Historical brief of  Otağtepe İstanbul had been sieged by Sultan Beyazıd of Ottoman in 1391. This had been realy important for them as it was the first. The Emperor wanted to view the whole Bosphorus, and this hill was the best spot for seeing the area and plus just across the Rumeli …


Cunda is the 4th largest island of Turkey in Aegean Sea. Nowadays the island became very popular. People love to come here and live the island life as it is very close to Ayvalık which is another shore line village of North western Turkey by the Aegean Region.
The island is a town of cobbled stoned paths, colorful stone houses, wonderful sunset, deep blue sea, peaceful wind under the shadow of old olive trees and fine fresh food you can always find. Cunda had been home to Greeks before 1922 and the population had been replaced with Turks from Lesbos island by the rules of Treaty of Lausanne which had been signed  in 1923. Island can be explored in a day by walking around the cobbled stone pathways and of course lovely shore line. However I suggest you to stay at least an overnight to live old island life in slow motion. There are lots of boutique hotels around Cunda you can find. Most of these hotels are popular as they serve organic food breakfast in Turkish style that you will ado…
