The great advantage of Turkey is that you can combine a relaxing holiday along the Turkish or Aegean Riviera, while still having ancient monuments and beautiful nature within easy reach. Go on an excursion, enjoy water sports or relax in the hotel spas, while the kids are entertained at mini clubs or water parks that are often part of many beachside properties.

We asked the experts at Coral Travel CZ – a tour operator that specializes in booking packages from Czechia to several holiday destinations and is part of the Coral Travel Group, which has organized tours for more than 28 million clients worldwide – why Turkey continues to inspire adventure-seekers.  

An adventure in nature

Turkey is a paradise for lovers of adrenaline sports and outdoor activities. The green plains of Belek are popular with golfers, while rafting through the fairytale landscape of the Antalya National Park can be enjoyed by novices as well as more experienced white-water fans. Paragliding opens up a breathtaking view of Turkish nature, but even a simple walk or bike ride along one of the country’s many cycle paths is an unforgettable experience.

Journey to the beginnings of modern civilization

Those who like immersing themselves in a foreign culture, religion and historical monuments will definitely want to visit Istanbul, where cultural influences of Europe and Asia intersect. You’ll enjoy visiting dozens of mosques as well as the famous Hagia Sophia and the city’s Kapali Carsi bazaar. Mix relaxing by the sea with sightseeing at, for example, the Side Resort along the Turkish Riviera, which is full of ancient buildings, including an agora, a theater and a Greek temple dedicated to Apollo and Artemis.

Kingdom of colors and flavors

Visit a traditional Turkish bazaar and soak up the oriental atmosphere amidst brightly colored carpets, mosaic lamps and other typical souvenirs. Markets can be found in most cities and you can find cheap branded leather goods, spices and diverse Turkish cuisine specialties.

You can try Turkish delicacies at family restaurants and hotels. Most hotels provide an all-inclusive concept with local and international cuisine, where everyone can choose what they like best. This will be especially appreciated by children, who can enjoy playgrounds, entertainment and animation programs in mini clubs, slides and pools while their parents take in a romantic lunch or dinner. As part of the Coral Family Club concept, Czech animators are looking forward to entertaining your little ones.

Sueno Hotels – comfort, entertainment and sport in one place

Turkish hoteliers want to make sure they have something for everyone. The properties in the Sueno Hotels network, for example, are located directly on or close to the beach. The hotels are equipped with swimming pools, spa centers with hammam, sports facilities and discotheques on their premises – guaranteeing that you will not be bored during your stay.
