Turkey is a Eurasian country, located mostly on the Anatolian peninsula in Western Asia and on East Thrace in Southeastern Europe. Turkey is one of the seven independent Turkic states. The country's official language is Turkish, which is spoken by the population as mother tongue. The vast majority of the population is Muslim.
 
Turkey is bordered by eight countries: Bulgaria to the northwest; Greece to the west; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, Iran and the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the southeast. The Mediterranean Sea is to the south; the Aegean Sea is to the west; and the Black Sea is to the north. The Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles (which together form the Turkish Straits) demarcate the boundary between East Thrace and Anatolia; they also separate Europe and Asia.
 
In part owing to their Islamic heritage, in part to their origins as nomadic herdsmen on the steppes of Central Asia, the Turks are an incredibly hospitable, open and friendly people. 
 
But the thrill of holidaying in a different culture amongst some of the world’s friendliest people is not sufficient to explain why Turkey attracts some 35 million visitors a year. With over 1,700 miles of Aegean and almost 1,000 miles of Mediterranean coastline, Turkey is a major draw for visitors looking for a beach-based holiday.
 
Another major joy of exploring Turkey is its ancient sites – the Aegean and Mediterranean littoral is liberally strewn with superb Graeco-Roman ruins, from well-know places like Troy and Ephesus to little-visited wonders such as Arykanda and Sagalassos. Most sites are easy enough to visit either on an organised tour or by hire car.
 
Turkey is a huge country, and with so many repeat visitors it is not surprising that after initial forays to the coastal belt, many find themselves lured by the austere landscapes of Anatolia. The rock-cut Byzantine churches and weird volcanic rock formations of Cappadocia, now home to hundreds of "cave" boutique hotels, is the most popular inland region.
 
Wherever you go in Turkey, and whether you stay in a posh villa or modest guesthouse, criss-cross the land in a hired car or go on an organised coach tour, you’ll be sure of a warm welcome, and come away with an intriguing insight into a country that is neither East nor West - but wholly its own.
