Antalya, Turkey "5 Bloom Gold"
Antalya, provincial capital of Eponymous, is the eight most populous city in Turkey. The City which takes its place at the top of the flower production league in Turkey, has taken an important step with the “Blooming Antalya” project and Expo 2016 will demonstrate that Antalya is a true universal green capital.
Antalya’s beautification program results are stunning. The overall effect of the Citrus trees planted through the streets, Bougainvilleas and Wisterias decorating facades, and palm trees along the boulevards…all are very impressive. The symbol of Antalya is the Orange, it’s everywhere in the City and always ready to pick from trees along the streets!
