The Middle Eastern country, officially known as the Republic of Turkey, bridges Europe and Asia. It shares its borders with Greece, Georgia, Bulgaria, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Azerbaijan, and the Black, Aegean, and Mediterranean Seas.

As one of the world’s earliest permanently settled regions, Turkey is home to Neolithic sites and ancient Hattians and Anatolian civilizations. Its rich culture and historical background are evident in its 17 World Heritage Sites.  Some examples are the Aphrodisias (the Temple of Aphrodite), Hierapolis-Pamukkale, the Archaeological Site of Troy, Ephesus, Bursa, and Cumalikizik, Xanthos-Letoon, the City of Safranbolu, and its latest addition, the Arsiantepe Mound (which was added in 2021), among others.

Turkish cuisine is primarily influenced by Ottoman cuisine, Mediterranean, Balkan, Middle Eastern Eastern European, Armenian, and Central Asian cuisines and flavors. Popular Turkish dishes are the Manti, the Kofte, Lahmacun, Menemen, Sis Kebap, Doner, and others. Try traditional Turkish drinks: Turkish Coffee, Tea, Ayran, Boza, Salgam Suyu, and Raki.

Important events and festivals in Turkey are the Antalya Demre International Noel Baba Memorial Celebrations, Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival, Turkish Choral Festival, and the Alanya International Culture and Art Festival.
