The European part of Turkey is mostly overlooked by travellers as they head straight for Istanbul. A 2-day stay in Edirne is more than justified. The city is like an open-air museum, with some 20 mosques, covered bazaars, hamams, and beautifully restored wooden houses.

When you'll come to Turkey overland from Bulgaria or Greece, the first city you'll visit will be Edirne. Quite nice and calm city situated on the border between Greece, Bulgaria and Turkey was in history very importamt strategic point.
