More accurate term for the "Popular Dessert" would be "THE BEST THING YOU'VE EVER TASTED" haha Love the quiz! Makes me want to go back to Turkey!

Maybe just 'cause I've never been a fan of Turkish delight, but... baklava is more popular, I'd say. I know, you didn't say "most popular..."

Missed only two: the third biggest city and the question about the nazar amulet. For the latter I tried dark/black magic, devil(s), evil, evil thoughts... :-/ The dessert one is also hard - there are so many delicious things - baklava, khalva, tulumbas... Aaand my mouth is suddenly full of saliva. :D

Mmmmm, I remember dipping my baklava into a Turkish coffee at the Grand Bazaar. The poor shop owner was looking at me like I was crazy.

I know the blue mosque is very famous but undoubtedly the hagia sofia is much moreso. It's as synonymous with Turkey as the Eiffel Tower is with France.

According to Wikipedia, the Hagia Sophia is now a museum.

But the clue didn't really specify a mosque currently in use, only the most famous. I agree with Kalbahamut, Hagia Sophia is much better known.

Have just spent this evening among thousands of families picnicking in the park in the 300 metre gap between Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque - at 11pm!!! It's a Saturday night in Ramadan, so people only start eating at the 8.50pm sunset, and it's the most fun friendly atmosphere. The free concert (there's one every night this month) starts shortly at 11.30pm.

I did too. Even then, I'm not sure I'd have described Turkish Delight as a dessert, it's more of a sweet/candy (that's how it's generally marketed in the UK).

I think I learned at least 11 of these things when we had to do reports on different countries in 3rd or 4th grade and I picked Turkey... because the name was funny.
I remember bringing Turkish delight in for the class. Though I'd first tried it after reading about it in the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. 2nd grade.

How about just Mustafa or Ali Rıza for the father of modern Turkey? That was his real name. The nickname Kemal was given to him by his teacher (it means mature or perfect) and Atatürk (which means father of the Turks) was given to him as a surname by the parliament in 1934 after the family surname law. Before that he was also known as Mustafa Kemal Pasha, but none of these work, it only accepts "Atatürk".
