Usually in the big cities most women don’t wear hijab. In smaller towns and villages they wear more traditional clothing.

Same with the Ramadan fasting. Some observe it some don’t. Though most people try not to drink or eat in places like buses, subway etc. during ramadan out of respect for those who fast. Restaurants stay open though so anyone is free to go there if they chose to do so.
I got the point. People is religious, but this is not somewhat so strongly enforced. More or less what happens here in Brazil in regards to the Christianity.

When we were in Turkey for about three weeks, our guide told us he was an atheist. It was very interesting getting his perspective on everything. I imagine that people cover the spectrum of religious belief there as in most places. A generation ago in Australia people would just state a religion when asked about it, whether they believed or not. Often say Church of England even if they were atheist. Now about one third write no religion on the census.

Turkey was amazing. I would love to go back there.
