In Turkey 29 October is known as Cumhuriyet Bayrami (Republic Day). This day commemorates Mustafa Kemal’s declaration that the Ottoman Empire would forevermore be known as the Republic of Turkey. With that declaration a vote occurred in the Grand National Assembly and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (Father of Turkey) was elected the first President of the Republic of Turkey.
Here are a few photos taken around Mersin today finishing our day with Ispanek Borek in Ataturk Parki.
