Established on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, captivating everyone with its exoticism, Casablanca at first glance resembles a metropolis under the French influence, where skyscrapers begin to rise, but Casablanca is actually hidden in the details. Considered the largest mosque in the world, the Hassan II Mosque, wide streets, Rick's Café, which we remember from the movie Casablanca, the historical Medina district hidden behind skyscrapers, and local public markets smelling of spices reflect the true face of the city.
The charming city of Morocco, Chefchaouen, famous for its blue-painted houses, has been a multicultural center where both Muslim Arabs, Jews and Catholic Spaniards lived throughout history. Its great feature is its characteristic gates, covered market and deep blue walls.
When you think of Morocco, one of the first cities that comes to mind is Marrakech. Marrakech is one of the most exotic cities in North Africa. The main reason why it has re-entered the radar of travelers in recent years is that this labyrinth-like city does not lose its authenticity and unique colors. This mysterious world, which has been preferred by artists and writers for centuries for inspiration, consists of the old city Medina and Guéliz sections, which are within the walls, and modern buildings.
To have a real Marrakech experience, you should stay in one of the riad-type hotels hidden in narrow car-free streets in the old city of the Medina. Each one is stunning with their luxurious designs and magical courtyards!
Although it may seem chaotic with locals trying to pull you off your arm and try to sell you something, you should see Djema el Fna Square.
Your trip to Marrakech would not be complete without seeing the Majorel Gardens, home of Jacques Majorelle, the heartfelt bond of Yves Saint Laurent, and today offering a fantastic world with its colorful design and plants.
Exhibiting the 40-year career of the famous designer Yves Saint Laurent, Musée Yves Saint Laurent is very impressive with both its building design and its collection.
