Meeting place of the Eastern and Western worlds, Turkey has always been a land of contrasts.
Cosmopolitan Istanbul stood at the head of the Byzantine Empire for a thousand years. Its Islamic successors, the Ottomans, ruled the Mediterranean and beyond for six centuries more.
This long Christian and Islamic history has left a legacy of historical sites. While Turkey’s Mediterranean coastline has long been famous for its beaches and wild nightlife. Travel east into the interior, however, and a more traditional land unfolds where life moves slowly and the legendary Turkish hospitality lives on.
Classical ruins, Bazaars, Cuisine and more…
Turkey’s teeming cityscapes, magnificent classical ruins, chaotic bazaars, and rich, complex cuisine testify to the country’s unique position at the crossroads of Asia and Europe. Istanbul, astride the strategic Bosphorus Strait, has been the capital of three empires—Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman—and has the tile mosaics and dome-and-minaret skyline to prove it.
Ruins of legendary towns dotting Turkey’s long Mediterranean coast—Aphrodisias, Ephesus, Bodrum and Troy—preserve in stone the secrets of ancient civilizations. In sprawling bazaars, carpets, spices, silks and other exotic goods for sale reflect millennia-old trade routes still traversing the country.
Inland, even geologic wonders have cultural depth. The cascading mineral pools of Pamukkale once fed royal baths. And Turkey’s food is revered as one of the world’s great cuisines: chicken with apricots and almonds, slow-roasted eggplant with garlic and lemon, lamb shish kebab, honey pastries and lots of yogurt.
