Top Attractions in Turkey

Turkey is situated in Anatolia and the Balkans, bordering the Black Sea, between Bulgaria and Georgia, and bordering the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, between Greece and Syria.
Turkey’s geographical location, which features the only city to straddle two continents, Istanbul, has made it an ideal destination for living and doing business for centuries. Connecting two continents by a body of water known as the Bosphorus, Turkey is home to many ethnic backgrounds, religions and cultures. With the great cultural treasure that holds artifacts, traditions and literature, Turkey is a melting pot of many cultures and peoples. Due to its colorful and long history, this beautiful country is also a mix of old and new, eastern and western, worlds. Tourists looking to enjoy the beach towns in the summer and history buffs that want to explore a country with a rich and dynamic history most frequently visit Turkey. The buzz has increased as of late due to the news that Istanbul will be the Cultural Capital of Europe in 2010, a prestigious and appropriate title that the city has earned through many positive changes. Though the Grand Bazaar, the Bosphorus and the cuisine impress tourists, the hospitality of the citizens is one of the most pleasant and alluring aspects of the country.
