WORLD LEADER IN CULTURE
"Büyükçekmece Municipality is a successful culture and art city not only in Turkey but also in the world. For example, Büyükçekmece International Culture and Art Festival, of which we organized the 18th this year, has been chosen as the world's number one 5 times by the World Festivals Association. Again, we address everybody with painting, photography, handcrafts workshops, folk dance courses, theater and cinema shows within the scope of our People's Academy. All our cultural centers are always full. Büyükçekmece is a city with a very high rate of readers. For example, our municipal library is the library that offers the most books to borrow in İstanbul. The Book Days, which we organize the first this year, will grow even more each year. I invite everyone to come to Büyükçekmece. In fact, Turkey's biggest book fair is held in TÜYAP, which is within the boundaries of our district. Büyükçekmece is a place that readers know well."
