About TÜRKİYE

A bridge between Europe and Asia, Türkiye has a lot to offer its visitors: breathtaking natural beauties, unique historical and archaeological sites, constantly improving hotel and tourism infrastructure, a tradition of hospitality, and affordable prices. Due to these features, it is not a surprise that this country has recently become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Because of Türkiye's variable geographical conditions, you can experience four seasons on any given day. Four different seas surround Türkiye with beaches, bays, gulfs, ports, islands, peninsulas, and many natural wonders.

Wandering the historical lands of Anatolia, you will notice the cultural mosaic in which different civilizations are intertwined. Türkiye has been the "cradle of civilizations" for years. The Neolithic settlement of Çatalhöyük, one of the first settlements in the world, dates back to 6500 BC. From Çatalhöyük to the present day, we continue to leave permanent traces on the path of modern civilization.

Türkiye, which has a deep culture and knowledge throughout history, hosted the Hittites, Phrygians, Urartians, Persians, Romans, Byzantium, Seljuk Dynasty, and the Ottoman Empire. For this reason, it is possible to come across historical artifacts and ruins specific to civilizations in every corner of the country.

Undoubtedly, a single trip to Türkiye will not be enough. You will want to go back to our country and explore the magnificent places one by one. No matter how different the places to visit are from each other, the sun, mountains, lakes, and sea will offer you a unique opportunity to get away from daily stress and routine. From April to October, you can enjoy the beaches and relax in the peaceful environment of mountains and lakes in most regions of Türkiye.
