Turkey, a transcontinental country straddling Southeast Europe and Western Asia, is a fascinating blend of ancient traditions and modern influences. The country’s unique position has contributed to a rich history and a diverse cultural heritage, derived from various empires including the Byzantine and Ottoman.

Ankara is the capital, notable for its government buildings and significant history, while Istanbul, the largest city, is celebrated for its historic sites, including the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and the Bosphorus Strait which divides Europe and Asia. Other significant cities include Izmir, known for its Aegean charm, and Antalya, a major destination on the Mediterranean coast.

Turkey’s landscape is equally diverse, from the beaches of the Turkish Riviera to the mountainous Eastern regions, and the unique fairy chimneys of Cappadocia. The country also boasts several UNESCO World Heritage sites and is renowned for its culinary delights, including kebabs, baklava, and Turkish tea.
