30 August Victory Day

Today is one of substantial days for Turks, our victory day!

It's official holiday  to commemorate the victory in the battle of Dumlupınar, one of the most important battle in Turkish war of independence in 1922. This date is a turning point in our history.

Ceremonies start at 07:00 and last until 24:00. The president visits Anıtkabir (Ataturk's grave) and lays a wreath. It's celebrated by all people with concerts, festivals and amusements. 

In recent years, we have bad days because of terrorism. For this reason, we sometimes have to cancel our celebrations. 

I hope that we and all world get rid of this nuisance.
