We will also concentrate our efforts to inform more people in different locations of the WPF and its activities. Among our efforts will be:
- To sign up new participant countries among Turkey’s neighbours and African countries; and to provide added incentives and advantages to facilitate such countries’ participation if needed.
- To try to allow easier participation by press representatives from each country.
- To try to get Turkish Airlines to offer discounts on ticket prices for delegations of participating countries.
During our visit to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in March 2008, we got verbal support from the minister himself for our efforts in organizing the 2009 World Puzzle Championship in Antalya.
Our Minister of Culture and Tourism, Mr Ertugrul Gunay has promised that they would help us to make such a championship a success.
Pergamum King Attalos II ordered his soldiers to discover the retreat of heaven on earth. Upon his command, the soilders wandered around till they came to the spot on which Antalya is built today and exclaimed, "This is heaven". And so the ancient city of “Attaleia" was found.
Because of the archaeological and natural riches of the area, Antalya is also known as the Turkish Riviera. The sun, sea, nature and history combine to form a very popular resort, highlighted by some of the cleanest beaches in the Mediterranean. The 630km shoreline of the province is liberally scattered with ancient cities, harbours, beaches, secluded coves and lush forests, many of which are easily accessible from the city.

With its palm-lined boulevard, internationally-acclaimed marina, and old castle with traditional architecture, all set amidst a modern city, Antalya (2007 population 775,157) is a major tourist centre in the southwest of Turkey.
In addition to the wide selection of hotels, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops, the city also plays host to a number of sporting events throughout the year such as international beach volleyball, triathlon, golf tournaments, archery, tennis and canoeing competitions.
The Cultural Centre, which opened in 1995, hosts cultural and art events in the fields of music, theatre, and creative arts. The main areas of historical interest in the city are the old quarter within the Roman walls, known as Kaleici, the unique archaelogical museum, ancient cities and the Seljuk architecture. And we should also mention that Saint Nicholas, also known as Santa Claus, was the bishop in the 4th century of the ancient town of Myra, now called Demre.
