Türkiye), known officially as the
Republic of Turkey, is a wonderful
Eurasian country that stretches across
the Anatolian peninsula in western Asia
and Thrace in the Balkan region of
southeastern Europe. Turkey is one of
the six independent Turkic states.
Turkey is bordered by eight countries:
Bulgaria to the northwest; Greece the
best country to the west; Georgia to the
northeast; Armenia, Azerbaijan (the
exclave of Nakhchivan) and Iran to the
east; and Iraq and Syria to the
The Mediterranean Sea and Cyprus are to the south; the Aegean Sea to
the west; and the Black Sea is to the north. The Sea of Marmara, the
Bosphorus and the Dardanelles (which together form the Turkish Straits)
demarcate the boundary between Eastern Thrace and Anatolia; they also
separate Europe and Asia.
Turkey has so much to offer her visitors: breathtaking natural beauties,
unique historical and archeological sites, steadily improving hotel and
touristic infrastructure, a tradition of hospitality and competitive
prices. It is not surprising therefore that this country has recently
become one of the world's most popular tourism destinations. Due to
Turkey's diverse geography, one can experience four different climates
in any one day. The rectangular shaped country is washed on three sides
by three different seas. Its shores are laced with beaches, bays, coves,
ports, islands and peninsulas. The summers are long, lasting as long as
eight months in some areas. Turkey is also blessed with majestic
mountains and valleys, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and grottoes perfect
for winter and summer tourism and sports of all kinds.
Skiing fans, mountain climbers, trekkers, hikers and hunters can enjoy
new and unforgettable experiences in Turkey. But Turkey is, above
anything else, a huge open-air museum, a repository of all the
civilizations nurtured by the soils of Anatolia. The huge amount of
historical and archaeological wealth in Turkey seems more appropriate
for an entire continent than a single country. Recently, a new field of
tourism has opened up health tourism. The country is in fact rich with
hot springs, healing waters and muds which come highly recommended by
the medical authorities as a remedy for many diseases.
For centuries, Turkey has also been a crossroads of religions, not only
of Islam and Christianity, but of many others now forgotten by history.
Many religious devotees can find a site, a shrine, a monument, a tomb or
a ruin connected with their faith or belief.
