When the Ottoman Empire began to crumble apart, the nation of Turkey rose from its ashes. Founded in 1923, it is a crossroads nation that links Europe and Asia. From the Black Sea to the Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean to the Turkish Straits, it is a place where the East and the West have come together in a curious and fascinating mixture.
Resort and spa communities are often the emphasis when visiting Turkey and there are several world-class opportunities in this category. Antalya, Oludeniz, Marmaris, and Alanya each has a distinct personality with their beaches, waters, and amenities that will help you relax in a way that can only be described as perfect.
Numerous civilizations have taken advantage of the benefits that Turkey offers. Istanbul, or Constantinople if you may prefer, is the only city to serve as the primary capital for 4 different empires. Much of this is due to its location on the Bosphorus strait, which separates Europe from Asia.
History can be discovered throughout Turkey as well. Mount Nemrut is a world heritage site with head statues that were dedicated to the ancient gods. Sumela offers an incredible monastery that is situated on mountain cliffs. Ani offers Medieval Armenian ruins to explore. The Roman ruins at Ephesus are incredibly preserved.
Whether it is beautiful architecture, the chance to learn more about a past civilization, or it is a need to relax on the beach with the sun on your face, Turkey has exactly what you’re craving. Make it your destination and you’ll find this nation provides a wonderful experience.
