Turkey is a country with hot and dry summers, snowy and cold winters. It stands out for its mountainous climate, which has continental features, as a result of which the Turkish regions have their own special weather conditions. The beginning of the holiday season here refers to April, and its end – to November.
Spring is characterized by flowering and fragrance, as well as comfortable weather. This can be explained by the non-hot sun, which gives people its soft rays. The air feels fresh and the breath is light and relaxed because of this. If a spring thunderstorm thunders, then warm rain will fall, and the air will be saturated with oxygen, that is, unpleasant sensations do not arise.
Consider the weather in spring and summer by month.
In the first spring month, the air warms up to 15-17 ° C, but there are also quite warm days with temperatures up to 20 ° C. Temperature indicators of seawater – 17 ⁰C –cool enough. The weather can still be capricious, it rains often, there may be cold days. But things are changing fast. In general, March is characterized by a large number of sunny days.
A month with consistently warm weather and an average temperature of a little more than 20 ⁰C. There is an opening of the season in virtually all hotels on the coast, in which vacationers come en masse. At this time, the sea water is rapidly heating up, but people with special tempering are already starting to swim.
The month is characterized by flowering plants in huge numbers. This applies to both cities and resort areas.
Especially the excellent first half of the month should be highlighted. It is safe to say that the warm summer season begins. Summer cafes and restaurants, radiating oriental hospitality, delight guests with national and not only cuisine. Mild heat with an average temperature of about 27 ⁰C. The water in the sea heats up more strongly to 20-21 ⁰C.
If you choose spring cities, it is better to give preference:
It’s time to buy last-minute tours to Turkey, as the heat has already come, and there is no sweltering heat yet. There is a rapid filling of hotels with tourists. The average daytime temperature (in the country) is 27 ⁰C-30 ⁰C. At night, it can drop to 18-19 ⁰C. Sea water warms up to 23 ⁰C. For those who do not like the intense heat, this time is the best.
The holiday season is in full swing, its peak is coming. It is characterized by high temperatures – up to 33⁰C. Even at night at least 27 ⁰C. Sea water reaches the warmest values – about 28 ⁰C. There is a dry period in most of the Turkish territory. But the cities of Kemer and Beldibi are located near the mountains, so there is an increase in humidity in the evening. The Black Sea coast is characterized by coolness.
At this time, even experienced holidaymakers may not feel well. The fault is very hot weather. This month is characterized by daytime temperatures reaching 35 ⁰C, rarely, but sometimes 40 ⁰C. At night – 28-30 ⁰C. Very high humidity level. But the sea will please with very warm water – up to 29 ⁰C. However, this is also for an amateur, someone likes cooler conditions.
In the summer, cities will be the best for recreation:
status: Belek, Fethiye, Didim;
for families with children: Alanya, Marmaris, Dalaman;
youth resorts: Kemer, Marmaris, Bodrum;
elderly people: Marmaris, Fethiye, Alanya.
Turkey ranks 6th in the world as the most popular tourist destination. There is hardly a single person who has been there who would not like this country, which welcomes everyone with pleasure.

It is unknown exactly what consequences the blow entailed, but the girl has since imagined herself an unearthly beauty. And in the eyes of those around her, she was still a plump plain girl. This film will be especially useful to those who believe that only women “90-60-90” deserve to be called beautiful.
A lot of bright and memorable events happen to us in the summer. Great weather gives you a great mood. Why not capture pleasant summer moments for memory? We are sharing with you ideas for an amazing summer photo shoot.
You can, of course, do a summer photo shoot in one of the central city parks, among fountains and flower beds, but considering how many amateur photos in such decorations “roam” on the Web, not everyone will like this idea. After all, any girl wants to have unique pictures in her collection, the likes of which no one else has. And it’s possible.
Photo shoot in the Slavic image
The days of bright-eyed girls in kokoshniks and sundresses are long gone, but sometimes you want to feel like a native Russian beauty!
The ideal option is to do a Slavic photo shoot somewhere outside the city, but if you do not have the opportunity to go anywhere, any clearing (or forest) will do, of which there are many in large and small cities.
It is better to postpone the usual jeans and shorts for another, more suitable occasion. Sundress with floral print (or chaotic curlicues) – this is what we need. Slavic girls did not wear trousers, because they believed that such clothes “cut” in half not only their figure, but also female energy. You can also wear a sundress or a maxi dress without a pattern. The cut of the outfit should be free. Models above the knees are unacceptable for a “typically Russian” image, since in the old days girls considered it indecent to show naked legs or shoulders to everyone.
The traditional Slavic hairstyle is a braid. You can slightly modify it, add volume by pulling strands. And you can wrap a traditional “spikelet” around your head, and it will also be very Slavic. As a decoration for a hairstyle, you can use a wreath of live or artificial flowers or weave hairpins with beads at the ends into your hair (you will get the effect of pearls in your hair. In makeup, it is better to stick to pastel tones, giving preference to nude shades of shadows and lipstick. Russian beauties did not draw arrows on their eyes and did not paint their lips in extreme colors – remember this.
Acceptable props are a bouquet of flowers, a book, fruits (real or fake).
Sports photo shoot
There are more and more runners, cyclists, and skaters on the streets… And what’s worse for you?
Take a bike, skate or roller skates and go to the nearby park! Shots “in motion” (when you drive or run) are the most spectacular. In addition, such a photo shoot is an extra reason to show a fit figure!
Can’t ride a bike, a scooter, or roller skates? It doesn’t matter! You can make shots from the “girl on a run” series. Or take pictures of how you deftly throw a soccer ball into the air (in the midst of the Football World Cup, such pictures are especially relevant. And men will appreciate them ;)).
Clothes for a sports photo shoot should be light and comfortable. Lovers of mini-shorts and tops have a place to roam! Leggings, jumpsuits, and even skirts will be “in the theme”. And in makeup, quite bold techniques are acceptable: bright arrows (blue, purple, green and other “acidic” colors), scarlet lips, saturated blush.
Sports imply laconic hairstyles with matched hair. Traditional bunches and a “ponytail” will help you. And if you want to diversify these simple hairstyles somehow, leave the two strands on the sides of the head unassembled and wind them on curlers. Curls framing the face will make the image more feminine and light. Don’t you like lightness? Then put a baseball cap or a bandana on your head, and the image of the girl-boy will be completed.
Acceptable props: bicycle (roller skates, skate, etc.), water bottle, balls, rackets, hoops and other sports equipment.
Fabulous photo shoot
A rare girl does not want to feel like a princess or a fairy living in a fairy kingdom in which all living beings are her friends. This girlish dream is easy to realize. You can do this both in a city park and in a photo studio. Good shots will turn out on the beach (the beach-sea theme will suit you if you decide to transform into a Little Mermaid).
It is impossible to imagine a princess without a magnificent dress. It can be either ordinary or in the style of “cosplay” (i.e. repeating the image of a movie character or cartoon character). You can rent a traditional dress in any showroom in your city. And a cosplay dress can be ordered inexpensively through mobile applications that allow you to purchase goods from China at a symbolic price.
The make-up of a fairy-tale heroine should be as feminine as possible. In a fairy tale, pretentiousness is permissible, so if you like rhinestones, false eyelashes, sequins and the like – feel free to use your favorite makeup attributes in your image for a photo shoot. If desired, you can make an aquagrim on your face by drawing any patterns on the skin with special hypoallergenic paints.
Try to choose the most romantic hairstyle. Curls, babette, a bow of hair or strands picked up, intercepted by a Greek braid for a hairstyle — all this will make you a refined lady worthy of the happiest fairy-tale plot.
Acceptable props: tiara, fake or live birds, plush toys, flowers, books, wicker furniture. And you can also attract a pet to shoot your own or rented for the duration of the photo shoot. Cats of fluffy breeds, small dogs, canaries are ideal. And for those who want something extraordinary, we recommend taking a picture with a real owl. These mysterious birds have become so popular today that they are rented out everywhere to participate in various filming and festive events.
We wish you an amazing summer with lots of mind-blowing photos!
Here you can relax with luxury in hotels or choose an economical, but with no less comfortable conditions in the private sector (you can find suitable accommodation here).
