Meaning of

Matiana “Matiana is one of the first names of Goreme district in Cappadocia, where the Matiana Travel was born. The story of “Matiana” name is; “Once upon a time, an old Orthodox-Christian lady lived in Goreme district, who was very famous for her holy personality. She was always optimistic and everyone who had a question, used to ask for her optimistic advises. Her name was “Mati” and people used to call her Mati-ana, which means “Mother Mati”; because she was kind hearted to everyone just like all mothers. Her big embracing heart and positive energy became so popular that whenever people were going to visit this neighborhood, they responded to people who asked “Where are you going to?” as “I am going to Mati-ana.” This name remained as a name of the district.” Today, Matiana Travel Team’s motive is to keep her legacy alive. We serve well to our guests, take care of their requests and find the best solutions; just like she did.”

About Turkey

There are numerous reasons for visiting Turkey. To begin with, this wonderful land is blessed by a lovely nature. Surrounded by seas on three sides, it is covered by mountains, forests, steppes and all sorts of land variations, all of which are of superb beauty. Indeed, the big part of the country is as lovely as a national park. The genuine friendliness and traditional hospitality of Turkish people towards visitors are wellknown worldwide. And then of course, the history of this land, called Anatolia, is incredibly rich and long.

Turkey

Antalya

Urfa

Turkey has hosted more than 36 civilizations over the past 5000 years. The whole country is the reflection of this richness; through its culture, traditions and archeology. Turkey still hosts many ethnic and religious minorities such as Armenians, Jewish, Christians, old Levantine families and much more. Ottoman Empire is the most influential civilization on today’s Turkey. The famous silhouette of Istanbul, great monuments, famous tiles and Ottoman cuisine are some examples. Their influence on daily life, architecture, literature and art are impressive. Turkey has borders with Armenia, Iran, Syria, Greece, Bulgaria and Georgia all of which also have great influence on the culture of Turkey. As a matter of fact, Turkey is the cradle of civilizations and Matiana Travel invites you to follow their footsteps in their motherland‌

LANGUAGE The most difficult change in any society is probably a language reform. Most nations never attempt it; those who do, usually prefer a gradual approach. Under Atatürk’s Leadership, Turkey undertook the modern world’s swiftest and most extensive language reform. In 1928, when he decided that the Arabic script, which had been used by Turks for a thousand year, should be replaced with the Latin alphabet. He asked the experts: “How long would it take?” Most of them replied: “At least five years.” “We shall do it,” Ataturk said, “within five months”. Today, Turkey has major universities all over the country. Except for Europe and North America she has one of the world’s highest ratios of university graduates to population. English and German are widely spoken in hotels and restaurants resorts and cities. In villages it can be difficult to find people who speak languages other than Turkish. But the natural friendliness of Turkish people will overcome many barriers. If you learn even a few basic words of Turkish you will be rewarded with an enthusiastic response form the people.

Safety At this very moment there’s not a single reason not to come to Turkey. Regarding the average crime rate, most foreigners will be even safer in Turkey than at home. The crime rate in Istanbul (about 12 million inhabitants) is far lower than in western countries and in non-touristic part of Turkey.

ATATURK : MUSTAFA KEMAL

RELIGIOUS ASPECT

Turkey is a democratic, secular republic which was established in 1923 after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. The founder of Modern Turkey is Ataturk who led Turkish people in the 1919-1922 War of Independence. He went on to reform the education system and language, replaced the Koranic law with European codes and commenced the process of building a modern, industrial society.

It is a well- known fact to those who have already been to Turkey, which The Turkish Republic is a singular and unique country, totally different from all Islamic countries of the world.

In 1949, Turkey became a member of the Council of Europe. In 1952, Turkey joined NATO and played a vital role in the Cold War. In 1995, Turkey joined the Customs Union with Europe and has applied for full membership of the European Union.

You need to be aware though that Turkey, some areas are still conservative and the values of Islam are widely respected. Very informal or revealing clothing can be seen as disrespectful, especially in small towns.

WOMEN’S RIGHTS

WHAT TO PACK

The new Civil Code, adopted in 1926, abolished polygamy and recognized the equal rights of women in divorce, custody, and inheritance. The entire educational system from the grade school to the university became coeducational. Ataturk greatly admired the support that the national liberation struggle received from women and praised their many contributions: “ In Turkish society, women have not lagged behind men in science, scholarship, and culture. Perhaps they have even gone further ahead.” He gave women the same opportunities as men, including full political rights. In the mid-1930s, 18 women, among them a villager, were elected to the national parliament. And Turkey had:

Turkey has a diverse range of climates. The coasts are generally mild in winter and hot in summer. The interior is warm in summer and cold in winter so you will need to bring clothes according to the season. Turks are generally informal in their choice of clothing and so there is little need to bring formal wear.

“The world’s first women supreme court justice.”

It is indeed a modern, democratic, secular country, where everyone can openly belong to any religion of their choice. This is guaranteed by the Constitution itself. Although the great majority of the population is Moslems, there is total respect and tolerance towards other convictions, cultures and descent.

Turkey is a country which can be enjoyed by walking either for the scenery or visiting the touristic sites. Good footwear, hat, sun glasses and sun protector creams are advisable. Turkey uses 220 volt electricity, 50 cycles, 2 pin European plug system, so you will need to bring an adapter if your electricity system is different.

Culinary is an important part of Turkish culture. There are two main themes in Turkish Culinary, Anatolian and Ottoman. Anatolian cuisine is famous for its main courses, soups, appetizers, deserts, sauces and drinks. They can be totally different in each region or may have local variations, because each region has different way of cooking as well as different ingredients. Ottoman foods have been made in Ottoman Palaces only and their recipes were taken from palace libraries. For that reason, they are more limited. They are more like experimental dishes of the imperial kitchens. Wine, the drink of the Gods, has also special importance, especially in Cappadocia and Aegean coast. Fertile soil of the regions gives different taste and texture to them that can’t be explained but must be experienced. Matiana Travel provides special programs just on food & wine, as well as blending it within the cultural programs.
