"Religion" Turkey Local Custom Tip by 80-bettyboo

Turkey Local Customs: 407 reviews and 378 photos

Turkey is a laic and democratic country (religion and state are separated ) And It is not the other Islamic Countires, and we will never let them do this to our country.We are free to chose cover ourselves or not..
Just being respectfull to relious people will be ok for you such as Avoding entering mosqoue at prayer time,when u are inside a mosque,don't disturb them,don't take flash photo and don't walk directly infront of them then it means thier pray will be broken and they need to do all that stuff all the beginning.
As for dressing up , u can wear whatever u want , and don't do alot of kisses with your boy/girlfirend inpublic, nothink would happen, but they would give you dirty looks.
