Thousand and one night, a legendary collection of Arabic folk stories is a place where the term “magic carpet” has been used for the first time. Since then, the term magic carpet, or magic rug, that flies and takes people to distant places, has been mentioned in many bedtime stories, used as inspiration for movies, TV shows, cartoons, etc.
