More about Turkey

With the city of Istanbul embracing Europe and Asia on the Bosphorus Strait, Turkey is a transcontinental Eurasian country of significant geostrategic importance.

Linking both the European and Asian markets, Turkey is a melting pot of cultures, with frenzied markets, towering mosques, imperial residences, and a lively art and musical entertainment scene.  Its stunning Mediterranean vistas, renowned eastern steppe, and ancient Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman ruins, Turkey’s diverse landscape, culture, and wide range of activities draw visitors from across the globe each year.

The modern Republic of Turkey was established in 1923, with Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (Father of the Turks) and founder of modern Turkey as its first president. As a democratic, constitutional republic, Turkey has become increasingly integrated with the West through its membership of organizations such as the Council of Europe, NATO, the OECD, and the G20 major economies.
