Turkey forms the link between Europe and Asia, stretching from the Balkan region of southeastern Europe to the west along the Anatolian peninsula. Turkey shares international borders with Bulgaria, Greece, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Syria. North of Turkey is the Black Sea, to the south is the Mediterranean Sea and to the west is the Aegean Sea. The Turkish Straits (the Bosporus and the Dardanelles) join the Black and Mediterranean Seas.
Turkey is a land of great antiquities, one of the oldest continually occupied land mas on Earth. Records of habitation stretch back through Biblical periods and beyond into prehistory. As a result the country is full of ancient sights. Turkey has always been the meeting point of European, Asian and Arabic cultures and this has left a mark historically on the cultures and archeology.
While the capital city of Turkey is Ankara, the largest and most famous city is Istanbul. It was here that the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires were based and is now a major tourist destination full of amazing historical buildings. Istanbul is also unique as it spans the Bosporus, thus crossing the continental border between Europe and Asia.
The coastline around Dalaman is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination. Here small towns line the deep coves and inlets found along the coast, backed by beautiful countryside and set in stunning bays with clear waters and pristine beaches. The Dalaman has excellent holiday opportunities, with pristine beaches and seas, ideal for fishing, sailing, snorkelling, boating, scuba diving or just the opportunity to lie in the sun and enjoy the rich local food.
