Why Turkey? Because Turkey has it all: The Cradle of Civilization, the Fertile Crescent between the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers, is in Turkey. Its Black Sea, Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Sea coastlines provide superb beaches, crystal clear water for swimming, and magnificent scenery. Turkey is chockablock with ancient ruins, from 9000BC Gobeklitepe to Bogazkale, the capital of the Hittite civilization (Hattusa), to the queen of ancient Roman ruins, Ephesus. Cappadocia, with its unique landscape of conical rock formations and Pamukkale with its pools of mineral water in whited terraces formed over the centuries from limestone deposits are geographical formations available only in Turkey. The Bosphorus, that legendary sliver of water that separates Europe and Asia and connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, the Ottoman masterpiece, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern, a masterpiece of Byzantine engineering, help make Istanbul unique among the world’s great cities.
