The Istanbul Photo Group welcomed spring with a magical walk through the vibrant tulip carpets in one of the largest parks of the city. Every April during the Emirgan Tulip Festival, Emirgan Park is taken over by millions of stunning flowers. Our members didn’t miss this chance — they found themselves surrounded by colorful gardens and pavilions and enjoyed a steaming cup of coffee accompanied by great chats and laughs.
