Best Belek Spring Holiday at Papillon Hotels

The couples looking for a Belek spring holiday will realize that Antalya has a unique smell at springtime. From the foothills of the Taurus Mountains to the sand dunes of the shores thousands of different flowers start to blossom.

The Symbol of Spring in Antalya

Taurus Mountains in AntalyaAntalya, which hosted the EXPO fair with the themes of “flowers” and “children”, is very different in Spring for people who have only visited Antalya during summertime before.

This smell is much more recognizable if you are arriving from a heavily urbanised city. In such cities Spring is just a timeframe on the calendar but Antalya is mesmerising in these months. The beautiful smell of orange blossoms can be smelled as soon as you land, especially if you have arrived right after a Spring rain and sun is shining after it.

The orange trees that welcome you in parks and gardens are covered with blossoms that capture people’s attention with their fragrance during spring.

The orange tree has always been admired by people, with its beautiful fruit and blossoms that can be seen side by side since ancient times. Since the early ages, white flowers, symbolising the innocence of women, have been used to crown brides at weddings, and their fragrances were once the most sought after scent for perfumes.

 

Women Are Like Orange Blossoms

Women are like orange blossoms

A Turkish writer once wrote “Women are like orange blossoms”:

“The orange flower is the only flower that is present on the branch simultaneously with its ripe fruit. If you see a ripe freshness, it is the orange blossom. Their childhood and youth are side by side, with their ripeness and wisdom of years.”

 

This “fruit together with its blossom” feature is featured by only a few plants all around the world. The orange and its blossom symbolise a combination of maturity and freshness, and were once used as wreaths at weddings. Even in mythology, Zeus is said to have given Hera the gift of an orange, called “the golden apple”, as a wedding gift.

The most important feature of the orange blossom that has amazed people since the early ages is that it can be found on a branch simultaneously with its ripe fruit. This unique plant has inspired artists and thinkers throughout the ages, with its aspects of maturity and youth, and combination of past and future.
  • The emblem of Antalya, which contains the letter “A”, the sun, an orange, and a palm, appeared during the Painting and Plastic Arts Symposium in 1975, during the Golden Orange Film Festival.
