The vibrant bazaar in the Aegean city of İzmir dates back to the 17th century. For tourists, it is a smaller version of Istanbul's Grand Bazaar.
"This is the start of a new era. We have three years to enter the permanent list of UNESCO," said Uğur Yüce, a member of the body responsible for the upkeep of the area.
