Turkey: the cradle of cultures and civilizations connecting Europe and Asia and capital of civilizations that have reigned the lands of Anatolia for a century.
Ankara is the capital of Turkey, which established a democratic regime with the foundation of the Turkish Republic in 1923. The Bosporus and the Dardanelles, connecting the seas of this magnificent landscape surrounded by the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, Aegean and Marmara seas, work as bridges connecting the lands of the region almost like silk threads.
Turkey is much the same as an open air museum thanks to its magnificent heritage comprised of historical and cultural monuments and sites built everywhere in Anatolia since the ancient times.
Located at the mid-point of the European, Asian and African continents, Turkey has a varied geography rich in mountains, plains, caves, seas and many other natural formations and beauties. All types of sports activities and more specifically outdoor sports can be done amidst a breathtaking nature providing both for adrenaline and entertainment.
One of the most precious and diverse treasures of Turkey is, of course, its cuisine. The blending of the culinary cultures of many communities and civilizations evolved over the centuries to transform into a magnificent heritage of flavours of a limitless variety.
