´Number 34´ - Sancaktepe houses Turkey´s most populated and largest city surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, but just a short 40 minute drive to the coastline.

´Number 35´ - Sultanbeyli – Until 1945 this was all farming land, but demand for a middle-class suburb grew and it now offers modest neighbourhoods & a conservative family atmosphere.

´Number 37´ - Tuzla used to have one of the busiest fishing ports in the world until leading Turkish Shipbuilders took over in the 1980´s. Still the locals here have many wonderful stories of the good old days…
