Turkey, sits partly in Asia and partly in Europe, it is at the crossroads of the Balkans, Caucasus, Middle East, and eastern Mediterranean. Turkey has a land border to its north-east with Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, to the south-east with Syria, Iraq and Iran, and to the west with Bulgaria and Greece. To the north is the Black Sea, to the south-west the Mediterranean Sea and to the west is the Aegean Sea. The Dardanelles, the Sea of Marmara, and the Bosporus divide the country.

Turkey is a predominantly mountainous country, and true lowland is confined to the coastal fringes. Its center is a treeless plateau rimmed by mountains.

There are plenty of activities to do here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. The country has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths, so there are plenty of ancient ruins and religious sites to see, including 13 World Heritage Sites.
