The origin of the (cultivated) tulip is the Middle East. No surprise that tulips are part of tourism promotion for Turkey, and in particular for Istanbul. Remember the small curved tea glasses with a tulip shape. Since 2006 the annual International Tulip Festival attracts aficionados from all over the world. The special atmosphere in Istanbul during the tulip blossom is captured in this monthly calendar for your enjoyment.
