Bozcaada, an island in Dardanelles, Turkey is unforgettable once visited with its streets, the castle, wine distilleries, Ayazma Monastery, museum, windmills, historical artifacts and art galleries.
Every traveler visiting this Island knows deep inside that the journey would not be the last one.
Bozcaada hits the New York Times’s list of the “52 Best Places to Go in 2017”. Long researching, international feedbacks, hours of meetings are the keystones of the list, so declared. And New York Times did not prefer the worldwide known destinations like Berlin, London or Tokyo, mostly preferred were the hidden beauties.
The New York Times described the Island as follows:
“This wind-hugged sliver of an island in the Dardanelles is delightfully secluded: a 50-minute plane ride from Istanbul to Canakkale followed by a leisurely ferry ride on the Geyikli-Bozcaada feribot. Despite its modest size, Bozcaada is covered in vineyards and home to six vintners, including the widely known Corvus. Beyond the vines are coves, ancient ruins, two beaches and a latte-colored Ottoman castle. Even the cobblestone downtown area has gotten more mellow: it became a traffic-free zone in 2015.”
The list consists of destinations which gain importance with its historical, cultural, architectural, sports and natural beauties.
“A slower-paced way to see Turkey.” Is the headline of Bozcaada for New York Times.
As a writer who had the privilege to visit Bozcaada, happy and excited to be able to share the inspirational beauty of especially watching the sunset on the hills of Bozcaada where the windmills rotate in harmony.
