Turkey #6: Antalya

I have this thing with Antalya... my each visit lasts only one day and for some reason my travel destiny always takes me there. Over and over again. Maybe to discover it entirely because each visit is just a piece of a puzzle. The puzzle made of Mediterranean sea, something Roman, something Ottoman, something old and something new. And every part of this city is my favorite: Hadrian's gate, Kaleici - old city center, full of narrow streets and Ottoman houses from anterior centuries, numerous waterfalls, beaches, the street with colorful umbrellas, the view... The view that spreads far away until the Taurus mountains. It's not a typical beach town, it's a city with over 1 million of people and the third most visited city in the world by number of international arrivals, ranking behind Paris and London! It's a perfect mix of old and modern, such as Turkey itself. Even Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, said that is was the most beautiful city in the world. While I was walking on its streets and corners in a search for apple tea, Turkish delight and another perfect pair of harem pants, I felt it again. I felt that I would be back but I promised myself that I would spend at least a week. And I think you should do the same ;)

Antalya y yo tenemos una relación rara... cada vez que voy, por un motivo o otro, me quedo sólo un día. Y así por un motivo o otro, mi destino viajero siempre me lleva ahí. Una y otra vez. Quizá para descubrirla entera porque cada visita me deja ver sólo un trocito. Un trocito que forma parte de algo grande hecho del mar mediterráneo, algo romano, algo otomano, algo antiguo y algo moderno. Y cada trocito es mi favorito: Puerta de Adriano, Kaleici - casco antiguo repleto de callejones y casas otomanas de anteriores siglos, numerosas cataratas, playas, la calle con paraguas de colores, las vistas... Las vistas que se expanden hasta las montañas Taurus. No es un pueblo culaquiera de la costa, es una ciudad con más de 1 millón de habitantes y tercera ciudad más visitada del mundo por el número de las llegadas internacionales, después de París y Londres! Es una mezcla perfecta de lo antiguo y moderno, como es Turquía entera. Incluso Ataturk, el fundador de Turquía moderna, dijo que Antalya es la ciudad más bonita del mundo. Mientras me perdía por sus callejones y rincones, en la búsqueda del té de manzana, la delicia turca y otros pantalones de estilo harem, lo sentí de nuevo. Sentí que iba a volver pero esta vez me prometí a mí misma que me quedaría por lo menos una semana. Y pienso que deberiáis hacer lo mismo ;)

Antalija i ja imamo jednu čudnu vezu... svaka moja poseta ovom gradu traje jedan dan. A iz nekog razloga moja putnička sudbina me iznova vodi baš tamo. Možda kako bih otkrila Antaliju u potpunosti jer je svaka poseta samo delić slagalice, slagalice sačinjene od Sredozemnog mora, nečega rimskog, nečega otomanskog, nečega starog i nečega novog. Svaki deo te slagalice je moj omiljeni: Hadrijanova kapija, Kaleici - stari grad prošaran uskim ulicama i otomanskim kućama iz proteklih vekova, bezbroj vodopada, plaža, ulica sa kišobranima u duginim bojama, pogled... Pogled koji se pruža sve do planina Taurus. To nije tipično mesto na obali mora, to je čitav jedan grad sa više od milion stanovnika i čak treći grad na svetu po broju međunarodnih dolazaka, odmah posle Pariza i Londona! Antalija je savršena mešavina starog i novog, kao uostalom i cela Turska. Čak je i Ataturk, osnivač moderne Turske, rekao da je Antalija najlepši grad na svetu. Dok sam lutala po njenim uličicama i ćoškovima, tražeći čaj od jabuke, ratluk i još jedan savršeni par harem pantalona, javio mi se poznati osećaj. Osećaj da ću se ponovo vratiti, ali ovog puta sam obećala samoj sebi da ću ostati bar nedelju dana, a isto to preporučujem i vama  ;)

  16. Mnogo lepe slike! Uvek me oduševi ova fora s kišobranima, odmah oraspoloži čoveka. Nisam znala da je Antalija toliko popularna tj, posećena (mada znam da dosta ljudi iz Srbije bira Tursku kad ide na letovanje).

    1. Hvala :) Slažem se za kišobrane, ja bih ih stavljala svuda :)
      I ja sam se iznenadila ali sad i razumem zašto je tako, Antalija i cela ta regija stvarno imaju svašta da ponude...
