Now, let’s talk about 3 major cities that I’ve spent most of my life.
I was born and still lives here would also Gebze
Situated 30 miles east of Istanbul on the northern shore of the Sea of Marmara, it is the second largest district of Kocaeli Province after İzmit, the centrum of the province, in terms of population.
Turkey, in terms of economic development is divided into six groups. I highly developed provinces of İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir province of Bursa, Kocaeli and Yalova province is the province. In this context, Gebze, Turkey’s one of the most economically developed are located in six provinces. Gebze Kocaeli province’s GDP also 33.7% creates. 1.69% of Gebze also GDP Turkey ‘s has produced.
Eskihisar Castle – Osman Hamdi Bey Museum – Hannibal ‘s Tomb – Eskihisar Amphitheatre – Coban Mustafa Pasa Mosque – Sultan’s Fountain – Bazaar Fountain – Eskihisar Fountain – Ballıkayalar – Bosphorus Zoo – Yahya Kaptan monumental tomb – Sultan Orhan mosque.
Like most other cities of Turkey, Gebze is famous with delicious food. You can eat one of the most delicious Turkish “Pismaniye” in Gebze-Izmit.
Pismaniye: is a Turkish sweet in fine strands made by blending flour roasted in butter into pulled sugar. It is sometimes garnished with ground pistachio nuts. Although the texture is similar to cotton candy, both method and ingredients are different.
Until recently pişmaniye used to be made at home in most regions of Turkey, but this tradition is now rapidly disappearing. Today the manufacturing process is partially mechanised. There are many different Turkish names used in different provinces, the most common being tel helva, çekme helva, tel tel, tepme helva and keten helva.
I moved to Kutahya when I was 21, to study in Dumlupinar University and working YKM branch IT and Logistic Projects Administrator. I stayed there only for 2 years but probably I’ll always miss these part of my life.
After university, I moved to Gebze
Last 2 years I still working istanbul 5 working day i’m come here.
You can cross from Europe to Asia using the bridge shown in the above picture. Normally, most of you probably suppose that crossing the continents using this bridge is very attractive and funny but unfortunately most of the times it is nightmare for us. Istanbul is a city with very poor public transportation. As a result, most of the time, we have very bad traffic in the city but there are nice things to do in..
