ramadan

Istanbul during Ramadan

My father and I are planning a short trip to Istanbul from August 3-10 (it’s the only time we can both take off). He is a very well-seasoned traveler in Europe and the Middle East, and I am a recent college grad with a keen interest in Muslim culture and Turkish society, so when I first discovered that our trip would overlap with Ramadan, it didn’t bother me at all. Now, however, I am concerned that we won’t be able to go into certain mosques or see certain attractions due to the holiday.
