Turkey’s Isparta: the city of roses. Here’s how to plan your visit, take part in the rose harvest & be overwhelmed by the delicate fragrance of Damask roses.
Rose harvest in Turkey: precious moments & delicate fragrance
Anyone who ever drove through – or even past – Isparta will have noticed it: this is the city of roses. The pink billboards advertising rose products are hard to miss as soon as you are nearing the city. And while this may all just seem like a brilliant commercial stunt, there’s a whole history behind the rose production in Isparta. As always, the true magic happens away from the shops, where skilled hands of early risers are the secret behind the rose harvest in Isparta. The smell is overwhelming when the morning air is filled with the delicate fragrance of Damask roses, and the awe-inspiring rose fields get a quick makeover from blooming pink bushes to lush green fields.
In this post, we’ll tell you how the Damask rose ended up in Turkey, and what you need to do to make the most out of your rose harvesting visit.
