When seeing an amazing red and beige box with the special carving, you have reached the Turkey Pavilion--a maze of dreams inviting your exploration. The theme of the Turkey Pavilion--"The Cradle of Civilization" has originated from Catalhoyuk (in the center of the region of Anatolia), one of the first-known settlements in the world.
The whole building consists of three parts--Dreaming of the Past where you can learn about the long history of the ancient cultural legacies, Cultivating the Present where you can experience the European culture in the 360-degree movie and Aspiring to the Future in which you are able to see how the image of the phoenix displays the good wish to strive for the "better life" in the Turkey cities.
Besides, you can also give it a try to the local authentic cuisines, watch the rich shows and purchase the exotic souvenirs. Besides these, a delicate opal gift carrying the good wish, might give you an extra good reason to tour the pavilion.
