School Trips to Turkey

A school trip to Turkey offers students the opportunity to explore a fascinating country that bridges the cultural gap between Europe and Asia!

Turkey is one of the world’s earliest permanently settled regions and was an important stop on the historic Silk Road, where cultures from far and wide could mix and swap ideas, as well as goods. As such, Turkish culture has itself been influenced by the various cultures of the Eastern Mediterranean, Western and Central Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

So, a school trip to Turkey allows students the opportunity to better understand the differences and similarities between these cultures, making this the ideal choice for a Halal school trip.

They’ll also see for themselves how multiculturalism is not a modern idea, and that different cultures have interacted throughout history, sharing ideas and innovations, as well as trading goods.

Most of our groups choose to base themselves in Istanbul, the country’s largest city. Istanbul is a fascinating destination for a school trip, because it’s located in both Europe and Asia, with the Bosporus acting as the divider between the two continents.

Here, your students will visit important monuments, such as the Blue Mosque and the grand Ottoman Topkapi Palace. And at the Grand Bazaar, your students will experience Turkish culture up close.

Turkey has also been at the heart of several important empires, including the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. And so, having been both Christian and Muslim, Turkey offers a fantastic opportunity to see how these two world religions have interacted throughout history. There are also a fantastic range of monuments to discover, telling the story of the various civilisations that have populated the area we now call Turkey.
