Hi, This probably will seem a bit stupid but I was wondering, how do you structure a Turkish address when you write it?Like obviously in england it would be: 1 blah street, blah, blahringham, b1 6fg Because I need to leave my boyfriends address for my mom along with all the other contact details when I go to stay with him and I have no idea how to arrange his address and therefore don't know if it will make sense I have asked him and, although his english is good, he has no clue what i'm going on about lolThanks for any responses :)

Not a stupid question at all! I had a very confusing conversation about how to write my Turkish address just last week. I still don't really believe her. Hee. Won't believe it till I see it work and I get some mail delivered to me here!

Yes, it's funny ! I've seen official addresses that include okul yanı or hastane karşısı.

Turks don't seem to get a lot of mail --- I've hardly seen any letterboxes on properties (other than rows of boxes in apartment buildings), don't know where the postie puts their letters (?).

If there's not a particular place to put it the postie usually sticks it in the side of the door.I don't really think that is's very important how you write the address as Cukur has demonstrated, I've received lots with the address written like we do in the UK.

We get ours delivered to a PO box where we don't even have to have to bother unlocking the box to check. As we push the PTT door open, Mrs. Yok looks at us over the top of her spectacles, gives that typically Turkish upwards head movement accompanied by a "tsst" and a resounding "Yok!".We rarely see a postie round our way, sometimes the downstairs neighbours get some sort of advertising from their credit card (you see, we've become Turkish enough to be nosy about other people's post!) and the postman either pushes it in the side of the door or puts it on the steps with a stone on it.We did notice when we were working in the carpet shop that most people got their personal post delivered to their work address.

Wow! That's all so interesting. I feel a little better about my address now. It says something about 1 km away from such and such landmark.

where I live all the apartment bloks have botanical names; you have to put the street name first, then the apartment name and number, blok, kat and daire number. The posties are pretty sharp though, if somebody leaves something off the address they usually write it in and it always gets here:ex: (not a real address, but right format)Okyanus Cd. <street nameAkasya 10-03 D5 Blok <building name and number and blok numberK:16 D: 73 <floor and flat numbersBahçeşehir, 34538 <Mh and zipIstanbul, Turkiye
