The UK`s Foreign Commonwealth Office issued a travel advice for Turkey. According to FCO there is a high threat from terrorism in Turkey. Since the bomb attacks in Istanbul on 15 and 20 November 2003, which caused a large number of deaths and casualties, there have been a number of small-scale terrorist incidents. Targets have included sites that are linked to Western (including UK) interests as well as to the Turkish state.
FCO strongly recommends that travellers should obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling to Turkey.
Due to the UEFA Champions League Final which will be held at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul on 25 May 2005 a large number of supporters expected and hotels will be busy, so FCO recommends that all visitors who plan to visit Istanbul during that period should make reservations in advance.
