Culture and culture industries, which are the biggest partners of the tourism industry, are also among the main subjects of the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism. 

The establishment strategy of the Ministry, like its examples in the world, aimed to create a culture and tourism synergy and to manage the possible problems of tourism in accordance with the principles of responsibility and sustainability. 

Success and failure in this direction can be made as a result of detailed research and evaluations, but in the global sense, the conceptual and structural complexities that tourism has fallen into from time to time continue to be the most important discussion topic today. 

An important way to overcome these difficulties in the name of tourism is to value the local culture and to internalize the principle of acting in a multidisciplinary field of work and activity without ignoring the responsibilities towards the environment. This goal can only be realized with a management approach designed in a good governance environment.

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkiye also attaches great importance to the Cultural Road Festivals programs that will be held throughout the year. Programs that started after the pandemic can also provide important expansions for destinations. 

It will be held in 11 cities this year. These cities are; Nevşehir, Trabzon, Erzurum, Çanakkale, Gaziantep, Ankara, Konya, Diyarbakır, İstanbul, İzmir and Antalya. In other words, the festival train, which will start from Cappadocia, will stop at Sümela, Palandöken, Troya, GastroAntep, Capital City, Konya Mystic Music, Diyarbakır Fortress and Hevsel Gardens, Beyoğlu, Ephesus and Mediterranean-Antalya.
