Turkey

Turkey: the cradle of cultures and civilizations, connecting Europe and Asia, and the capital of civilizations that have ruled the lands of Anatolia for centuries.

Turkey has a varied geography rich in mountains, plains, caves, seas and many other natural formations and beauties. A wide variety of outdoor sports are available amidst a breathtaking nature providing for both adrenaline and entertainment. Few things are more relaxing than the warm Aegean and Mediterranean beaches, where excellent hotels will accommodate you. Allow yourself the luxury to experience the Blue Voyage, a week-long trip on locally built schooners to ancient cities, harbors, tombs, mausoleums and intimate beaches in the numerous small coves, lush forests and streams that lace the Turquoise Coast. Thanks to its magnificent heritage, Turkey is like an open-air museum with it historical and cultural monuments and sites built everywhere in Anatolia since ancient times. Be amazed while exploring the Giant Nemrut sculptures, the Cumalikizik Ottoman Village, the Cappadocian cave houses and many more! While visiting the capital, Istanbul, don’t miss the chance to see the link between the two continents, the Bosphorus Bridge, the magnificent Blue Mosque, and enjoy traditional Turkish cuisine and their delicious tea! There is no need to think twice. Turkey!

Ankara is the Turkey’s capital and the second largest city(also by population) in the country after Istanbul. It is a modern European metropolis speckled with frequent reminders of its own history. There are numerous castles from Hittite, Phrygian, Roman, Byzantine, Hellenistic and Ottoman civilizations which make a significant impact on its landscape. The modern city has government and state houses, universities, military bases, bustling nightlife, military bases and the oldest city park, Genclik Park. Ankara is home to a large population of foreign diplomats and embassy staff, so it offers services better than the other cities in Turkey.

Istanbul is at the same time Turkey’s largest and most populous city. It’s located on both sides of the Bosphorus. Istanbul serves as a bridge to connect Europe with Asia, not just physically, but culturally. There is a wide variety of sights to see, which makes avisitto this city worthwhile: mosques, bazaars and Turkish baths. This could keep you happily occupied for the whole trip. The city’s architecture is amazing. You can visit the Blue Mosque(Sultan Ahmet Camii), which is also visible from many points in the city. Pass by the Galata Bridge and make a stop at the Miniaturk Park where you can see these tiny artifacts. Not to mention the Grand Bazaar with thousands of shops to choose from. But beware not to get lost in it!

It’s possible you have heard about Homer’s Iliad, written about the battle of Troy and Trojan Horse. Heinrich Schliemann excavated the site believed to be Troy in 1870. You can experience a thrill just seeing Troy’s ancient walls, climbing around the ruins and gazing across the Troad towards the Dardanelles’ waters and Gallipoli’s hills. You can also visit the mountains found east of Troy near massive Kazdağı(Mount Ida). Its oldest ruins date from 3000B.C.; its great age and beautiful site are impressive. You can buy costumes with capes, helmets, a chariot and bows and arrows. You can even see the Trojan Horse(of course, not the original one).

Edirne is one of the few Turkish border cities and serves as a gateway to the west. It’s a charming city with both natural and cultural heritage. It was founded by Thracians that came from Asia in ancient times. During the Ottoman Empire, it was a very important city because it served as the capital for 92 years. It is situated south of the Istranca Mountains, alongside the Meriç River. You can visit its historical buildings and structures, try its traditional foods, see the cultural mosaic and be embraced by its inhabitants’ hospitality. The imperial past is what makes Edirne interesting. Although at first all you will see will be concrete apartment blocks when entering the city (and Selimiye Mosque right in front of you), soon you will view the Ottoman imperial complexes and downtown shops’ neo-classical architecture.

Visiting Turkey is a wonderful and enriching experience as you discover ancient traditions, Turkish culture, historical sites as well as places and destinations that will make your journey wonderful. It is modern enough to feel comfortable and traditional enough to be interesting to anyone. If you are looking for an unforgetable experience and beautiful moments , Turkey is the right choice.
