I didn’t expect Turkish BODRUM to be so…

…colorful!

.
Where Orient meets Europe, or Turkish city full of colors and little surprises. And a nice place to relax, even during low season.
What should you visit in Bodrum?
.
1. Walk through those cute streets alongside the shore leading to the Castle. I even didn’t know where to look (or what to shoot) first – an alley leading to the beach on one side, a street with colorful umbrellas on the other. And which color is the most popular in Bodrum? Blue, of course!

3. Are you a history lover? A simple weekend trip won’t be enough for you. Also called Halikarnass in the past, this city is full of sightseeings – the Castle with Museum of Underwater Archaeology; remains of one of The Seven Ancient Wonders of the World – Mausoleum, ancient Amphitheatre, Myndos gates and much more that will give you a glimpse of an ancient world that Bodrum was once part of.
.
4. Stop by in local shops with charming items and unique atmosphere. Colorful glass lanterns, hand-painted plates and bowls, clothes and, of course, blue eye talismans supposed to ward off evil eye. But if you want to take pictures of this beauty, you will maybe need to ward off merchants’ evil eye, as they usually prohibit doing so. In other shops (where they understand marketing), they will maybe make pictures of you ­čÖé

5. Watch sunset from above. After an easy hike uphill, you’ll have whole city in sight. Look for windmills De─čirmen, or, to be more exact, for their remains in decay. However, imagine how many times they must have already been witnesses of such beautiful sunsets!

…farebn├Ż!

Tureck├ę mesto, v ktorom sa Orient stret├íva s Eur├│pou, a ktor├ę prekypuje farbami a mil├Żmi prekvapeniami. A aj mimo sez├│ny je pr├şjemn├Żm miestom na oddych.
─îo sa teda v Bodrume oplat├ş vidie┼ą?
1. Poprech├ídzajte sa malebn├Żmi uli─Źkami popri pobre┼ż├ş a┼ż k hradu. Ja som miestami ani nevedela, kam sa sk├┤r pozera┼ą (a ─Źo sk├┤r foti┼ą). Na jednej strane v├Żh─żad na more, na druhej ├║tuln├í uli─Źka s pestrofarebn├Żmi d├í┼żdnikmi. A najob─ż├║benej┼íia farba bodrumsk├Żch ul├şc? Jednozna─Źne modr├í!
Jeden Atat├╝rk nie je nikdy dos┼ą!

2. Nevynechajte pr├şstav. Obdivujte obrovsk├ę lode, st├ínky s remeseln├şkmi, ryb├ş trh alebo si len tak sadnite a pozorujte okolie.

├üno, v Bodrume sa dekoruj├║ aj stromy  ­čśä

3. Milovn├şci hist├│rie? Potom v├ím toto mesto na v├şkendov├Ż v├Żlet mo┼żno ani nebude sta─Źi┼ą. V b├Żvalom Halikarnasse sa to pamiatkami len tak hm├Żri – spom├şnan├Ż hrad, ktor├Ż je z├írove┼ł M├║zeom podmorskej archeol├│gie; pozostatky jedn├ęho zo siedmich divov sveta – Mauz├│lea, antick├Ż amfite├íter vytesan├Ż do skaly, Myndosk├ę br├íny a ove─ża viac v├ím aspo┼ł s─Źasti predstavia antick├Ż svet, ktor├ęho bol jeden ─Źas Bodrum ┼żivou s├║─Źas┼ąou.
4. Zastavte sa v miestnych obchod├şkoch preplnen├Żch o─Źaruj├║cimi predmetmi, v ktor├Żch to d├Żcha jedine─Źnou atmosf├ęrou. Svietniky zo sklenen├Żch moza├şk, ru─Źne ma─żovan├ę taniere, misky, oble─Źenie a najm├Ą v┼íadepr├ştomn├ę modr├ę oko, ktor├ę vraj chr├íni pred urieknut├şm. V niektor├Żch v├ís v┼íak pre fotku urieknu sami obchodn├şci; ale tam, kde pochopili, o ─Źom je obchod, v├ís mo┼żno odfotia aj sami ­čÖé
5. Vychutnajte si z├ípad slnka z v├Ż┼íky. Po nen├íro─Źnej prech├ídzke z pr├şstavu do kopca sa v├ím otvor├ş cel├ę mesto ako na dlani. Poh─żadajte mlyny De─čirmen, alebo presnej┼íie, ich pozostatky v rozpade. Ko─żkokr├ít v┼íak u┼ż museli by┼ą svedkami tak├Żchto pren├ídhern├Żch z├ípadov slnka!
6. Zab├ívajte sa! Spoznajte v┼íetky zauj├şmav├ę z├íkutia Bodrumu a okolia, ochutnajte miestne ┼ípeciality na terase s v├Żh─żadom na more a zavolajte v┼íetky z├í┼żitky domov z delfif├│nu ­čśé
7. Nakoniec sa in┼ípirujte aj na┼íimi z├í┼żitkami v nasleduj├║com videu ­čśë
