Turkish Tulip Festival opens in Switzerland

Around 30,000 Turkish tulip flowers of different shapes and colors are on display at a tulip festival in the city of Morges, Switzerland.

The two-day Turkish Tulip Festival was launched on April 28 as part of a month-long Morges Tulip Festival at Morges Independence Park, located on the shores of Lake Geneva.

“We have organized the event for the 9th time at this park. Istanbul sent 30,000 flowers to Morges municipality for this event,” Ertan Özbatur, organizer of the festival, told state-run Anadolu Agency.

Local Turkish music is being played in the park during the festival, while visitors can also get a taste of Turkish food.

Morges welcomes the return of the spring season every year in April with tulips from all over the world and Turkey has been sending its tulips to the city every year since 2010.
