As we enter the new year, people have already started to make a new work and calendar program. Whether in the public or private sector, everyone has many plans to make use of their free time. While some are planning a vacation with their families, some are thinking of going somewhere with their friends. With 2024, people naturally started to investigate which days are holidays. Especially those who want to combine holidays and go on a long trip have already started making their programs. So, which days will be public holidays in 2024? How many days will people take vacation? We wanted to help you, our readers, plan more comfortably by giving the answers to these questions under a single heading. Here are the public holidays.

January 1 New Year's Holiday

As it is known, this year New Year's Eve, December 31, fell on Monday. For this reason, people started to evaluate the holiday from Friday. Especially those who love winter holidays flocked to nearby ski resorts. However, those who wanted to spend pleasant moments with their families filled the hotels and entertainment centers in coastal areas. New Year's holiday was a holiday on Monday, January 1.

Semester Holiday

An extremely important issue for families with children is when the semester break falls. The education calendar for 2024 has been announced and in this context, the beginning of the semester will be Monday, January 22. The return to schools will be Monday, February 5. Families who want to spend this period with their children can take advantage of this moment by taking leave from their work. In February, both snowy regions and relatively slightly warmer seaside regions can be preferred. 


Ramadan Eid Holiday

If you are planning to make a plan for Eid al-Fitr, it may be in your best interest to start researching now. Eid al-Fitr will cover a 4-day holiday, including 1 day of Eid al-Fitr and 3 days of Eid. Since the feast days will cover the weekdays, you have the chance to make a 10-day plan. For this reason, you can already start looking for hotels, camps or hostels and enjoy the Eid al-Fitr holiday to the fullest. 

April 23 Holiday

April 23rd National Sovereignty and Children's Day falls on Tuesday this year. There will be a 1-day holiday on Tuesday. You may want to take advantage of this small holiday by combining it with Monday. 

May 1 Holiday

This year, May 1st Labor Day falls on Wednesday. In other words, there is a 1-day official holiday on Wednesday. For this reason, you may want to go to relatively closer places for the day, and you can plan accordingly. Or, if you can get permission until the weekend, you can have a nice vacation with a few days of accommodation. 

May 19 Holiday

May 19 Commemoration of Atatürk Youth and Sports Day falls on Sunday this year. Therefore, there will be no holiday on weekdays. Still, don't let your excitement wane. Everyone will be out and about on this day, and you can either join daily tours or spend time in quiet and peaceful locations nearby.

19 Mayıs

Eid al-Adha Holiday

The initial day of Eid al-Adha, a 4.5-day holiday in total, including an eve, falls on Saturday, June 15. The holiday concludes on Wednesday, June 19. While it's uncertain if the week will be consolidated, a 5-day break is an excellent opportunity, providing more than enough time to venture out with your loved ones and create lasting memories. Booking in advance may land you affordable rates at many hotels.

July 15th Holiday

July 15, Democracy and National Unity Day, is a public holiday. This year, July 15th falls on a Monday. Therefore, you can plan a brief getaway starting from Friday. For a 2-3 day escape, choose a location first and then explore booking options. Browse through hotels, resorts, or hostels based on your chosen locale, ensuring a budget-friendly place to enjoy quality time with your family.

August 30 Victory Day Holiday

August 30 Victory Day, declared a 1-day public holiday, falls on a Tuesday. Seize the opportunity to plan a delightful trip to the seaside or lakeshore, taking advantage of the favorable weather. Alternatively, explore the forests and picnic areas in your vicinity to cool off.

October 29 Republic Day Holiday

In 2024, October 29th Republic Day falls on a Tuesday. Utilize this one-day break to enjoy a pleasant day in nearby locations, capitalizing on the weather. Consider searching for daily holiday routes, or if you have the chance for a weekend getaway, embark on Friday for an enjoyable adventure.
