Tulips are in full bloom all through April on the territory of Turkey. Flowerbeds and lawns of all parks are filled with these beautiful multicolored flowers. The fashion for tulips was introduced almost 500 years ago by Sultan Ahmed III, who ordered that they be planted in palace gardens and parks. Since then, tulips have been a symbol of the Ottoman Empire, their images are often found in architecture and painting, and tulip festivals are held every spring in April.

Those who are used to working for themselves tend to do so even when moving to another country. When planning a move, people are increasingly looking not only at the climatic and social conditions of the country, but also at the conditions of doing business in it.
