Reception

Binbir Gece was a hit in Chile, where its success resulted in many Chileans naming their babies Onur (boys) & Sheherazade (girls). It played in the United States, Colombia, Argentina and Brazil.

A writing campaign is underway.[10]

The series became a primetime hit in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and Macedonia as well as in Romania, Albania, Bulgaria and Greece.[11] It increased the popularity of Istanbul as a tourist destination among Serbs and led to a greater interest in learning Turkish.[12]
