Turkey: Waterfalls, Antalya, Manavgat, Gündoğdu and Side

Last Thursday I got three postcards: one from Turkey, one from France and one from Germany.

The card from Turkey shows four waterfalls.
My mum sent this card to me on her recent trip to Turkey.

Ruins of Perge (issued 22-05-2018)

My mum also brought back some other cards from her trip for me.

Antalya is the fifth largest city in Turkey, the largest Turkish city on the Mediterranean coast and the capital of the Antalya Province. It is settled since the 2nd century BC and was later an important Roman city in the region. Today the city is best known as Turkey's biggest international sea resort.

Manavgat is a town in the Antalya Province. It is especially known for its waterfall, which was once shown on a Turkish lira banknote.

Gündoğdu is a village near Manavgat.

Side is an ancient Greek city on the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey and one of the best-known classical sites in the country. Today it is a popular tourist destination.

The other cards are general view cards of Turkey.
