Beautiful city

The city of Thessaloniki has very important role in my life simply because the unforgettable hospitality of the citizens of this lovely city .
On the other hand I feel myself "home" ,because this city is the birth place of the greatest Turkish leader and the founder of modern Turkey "Ataturk" at the same time
You know that we are a little sensitive with the Greek people in many subjects but this delicate situation doesnt prevent us to "love" and "like" each other in daily life.
Thessaloniki is the twin city of Izmir in my country in every aspect
as I told you before I feel home in this city

twin city

Izmir ( in Turkey) is very similar to the city of Thessaloniki
I am trying to show you the similarity with a photo taken by Seref Bilgi
in 2004

Ouzo or Raki

We have so many things to dispute with our Greek Neighbours.
No doubt that we have similar taste in eating and drinking
I will try to write you the greek and turkish version of the meals which they claim its %100 greek
greek turkish
dolmates dolma
koftedes kofte
moussakka musakka (same prounonciation)
Tzatzik cacik ( same prounonciation)
Baklava baklava
Loukoumi Lokum
Kataifi Kadayif
Kourabiedes Kurabiye
Gyro Doner
Greek coffee Turkish coffee (same product)
But its not important what they claim the food is good try them !!!
music also is very important this is just an example :

    Thanks Macit for your nice page! I quite agree with you about "Byzantion or Roman Occupation" of Turkiye. I'm planning a tour around Greece and I'm thinking over if Thessaloniki is worth a visit. It was ruined in the earthquake. Best regards from Moscow!

    That's "Mylos", not to be confused with "Milos island". :) - Andreas
