About Turkey

Today, Turkey is the country of contrasts, with modern cities that create new trends and old villages in the continental region where it’d seem like the time has stopped centuries ago. Monuments of the ancient world are spread around the entire country and they are considered to be among the best preserved ones in the world. Their priceless value lies in the incredible stories they are telling us. In Turkey, people are more than welcoming so it’s not that rare to start a friendship in one of the numerous delis over a cup of tea or coffee.

Another association for Turkey is shopping they are well-known for. Whether you are thinking of their famous rugs and leather products or pricey worldwide-known brands, Turkey is the destination to go.

Turkish resorts are widespread on the coasts of Aegean and Mediterranean sea. Mesmerizing beaches, cities with traditional architecture and modern hotel complexes of the most prestige world’s hotel chains situated in an untapped natural environment, very close to ancient monuments, are what makes these resorts so irresistible. Many Turkish beaches are situated in protected national parks. In the continental part of the country there are stunning natural wonders such as rocky formations and caves of Cappadocia or blindingly white terrace pools of Pamukkale. Somehow, wherever you go to in Turkey - you won’t be disappointed.
