I will be visiting my friend in Istanbul (for the 1st time) from May 3rd to the 12th and I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am! .. Now, I just read something that got me a little worried: U.S Dept. of State website warns about May 1st celebrations resulting in violent clashes lasting for weeks and even months - like last year. Should I be concerned? I know events like these cannot be predicted most of the time, but in your opinion, is there a high chance for something like that to happen in early May?
I would very much appreciate your answers. Thanks!
