Turkey, situated along the border between Europe and Asia, stands at a global crossroads with an extraordinary history.

This long and fascinating past has shaped the modern country, creating a unique blend of stunning cuisine, sites of great archaeological and religious importance, as well as one of the world's largest cities.

From Alexander the Great to the Roman and Ottoman Empires,

From Gobeklitepe, "Point Zero in Time – The Oldest Temple in the World," to the Seljuks,

Turkey's colorful history has left a remarkable cultural wealth: Hittite monuments, ancient Greco-Roman ruins, Byzantine churches, Seljuk caravanserais, Ottoman mosques, and more.

Even today, Turkey ranks among the world's top tourist destinations, thanks to attractions such as the elegant Istanbul, which has one of the youngest populations in the world, the stylish beach cities along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, the wealth of world-class historical sites and ruins, and the unforgettable landscapes of places like Cappadocia, the famous bazaars and artisan crafts, and the decadent traditions of Turkish baths...

To this, add the incredible cuisine, which is

One of the richest and most diverse culinary cultures influenced both by the country's history and its geography. The abundance of diversity in terms of ingredients and differences in regional cultures, as well as the legacy of Ottoman cuisine, have played a significant role in its development. With a landscape that spans so many different variations in terrain, temperatures, altitude, humidity, vegetation, and climate, Anatolia's diversity is also a major factor in the similarly diverse nature of its cuisine.

It is clear that travels to Turkey offer something for everyone.

Climate: Turkey's varied climate, generally a semi-continental Mediterranean variant, is strongly influenced by the presence of the sea to the north, south, and west and by the mountains covering much of the country. The sea and mountains create contrasts between the interior and coastal fringes. Several areas have the maximum winter precipitation typical of the Mediterranean regime, and summer drought is widespread.

However, the country's elevation ensures that winters are often much colder than is common in Mediterranean climates, and there are significant contrasts between winter and summer temperatures.

In addition to the holidays listed below, Turkey celebrates various religious holidays that follow a lunar calendar, such as Ramadan (3 and a half days) and the Feast of Sacrifice (4 and a half days).
