Antalya Metropolitan Municipality decorated the city with tulips and colourful flowers, the harbingers of spring. One hundred sixty-one thousand tulips and hyacinths blooming in the central medians and crossroads created a riot of colours in the city. The Metropolitan Municipality Department of Parks and Gardens brought 161 thousand tulips, hyacinths and crocus onions to the soil in December.
