SQUIZ THE WORLD (1400 × 700px)

Squiz the World goes to… Turkey / Türkiye

Each fortnight, we give the world globe a spin, and see where we land. Then we take the kids of Australia on an audio excursion to visit that country and its people.

As we approach Anzac Day, join your captain, Amanda Bower, on an exciting audio adventure as we whirl into the vibrant country of Türkiye, also known as Turkey. This week, we’ll soar across continents in our Squiz Kids Super Fast Supersonic Jetliner, exploring Istanbul, a city that spans both Europe and Asia and boasts a rich tapestry of history from the Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Plus, we learn about Türkiye’s unique school commutes and tantalising national dishes like manti. Ready for a fun-filled journey? Strap in, and let’s take a squiz at Türkiye!
