Turkey, that magical place where East meets West.  Country that occupies a unique geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe.  Throughout its history it has acted as both a barrier and a bridge between the two continents.

Home to İstanbul (Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Place), Izmir(Ephesus), Ankara (Old castles and ruins from Hittite, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman.), Troy and Antalya. 

Istanbul straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosporous Strait. Having served as an imperial capital for almost

16 centuries, its old city reflects the cultural influences of the many empires that have ruled there.

If one had a single glance the world, one should gaze on Turkey.
