Every corner of Turkey is unique in terms of nature and historical background. The shining star of Thrace, Tekirdag, is one of the hidden beauties of Anatolia with its blue-flagged beaches, cultural heritage, historical landmarks and natural wonders.
According to the ECO Cultural Institute quoting Anadolu Agency, Tekirdag province, near the city of Istanbul, with its lush nature, is one of the most important tourist centers in the country. This wonder of Thrace is a second home to adrenalin junkies who like to fly like birds by paragliding. You can also discover the best campsites and tour the region with your caravan while enjoying the sun and beaches with your family.
Tekirdag Culture and Tourism Director, Abdullah Barut, describes Tekirdag as the "pearl of Marmara" and claims that tourism activities in the city are the locomotive sector of Tekirdag.
"Our advantage is being so close to Istanbul. Tekirdag features 450 kilometers of coastline as well as historical landmarks and places travelers can explore by themselves or with family and friends," Batur said.
The culture and tourism director also highlighted the fact that the most important tourism draw of Tekirdag is its blue-flagged beaches, which indicates that they are the cleanest beaches in the country. "There are authentic villages in Tekirdag as well as coastal towns that offer a quick getaway for urban dwellers. In the Uçmakdere region, our visitors can also get a bird's view of the city while paragliding. Tekirdag also has archaeology and ethnography museums along with private museums, such as the Rakoczi Museum and the House of Namık Kemal.
