There were plans to go with Turkish-German friends to Istanbul, and learned a lot about the city before my vacation. And I'd like to share the tips with tourists who are planning to visit the city. To enjoy Istanbul winter, some things don't miss in Istanbul travel.
Drink Turkish tea
If you come to Istanbul you have to drink tea out of a tulip-shaped glass. Turkish tea is prepared in a rather unique way using a teapot that has two level: one to boil the water, and the other to brew the tea. You then pour the tea into the glass and dilute it with the hot water so that it’s made to your taste.
Börek is a traditional Turkish pastry made of flaky dough. It can be stuffed with feta cheese or minced meat as a savoury treat, or if you prefer something sweeter, you can eat it plain with a little bit of icing sugar sprinkled overtop.
