In Turkey, 4 seasons can be experienced simultaneously in different regions. Climate and weather conditions differ according to regions in Turkey. December, January, February and March are generally winter months in Turkey. In June, July and August, the summer season is experienced. Winter in Turkey varies according to regions. In the region, which includes Istanbul and called ‘Marmara’, winter is usually cold and snowy. In fact, with the effect of heavy snow from time to time, traffic in Istanbul came to a standstill, and many of the people could not go to their homes. In the region of Turkey that opens to the Aegean Sea, winters are generally mild.
