Country amd city description

Country description

Geographically, the Republic of Turkey is a bridge between Europe and Asia. Due to its location, it i surrounded by the sea on three sides. Turkey has always been a center of trade, silk and spice routes. Today, even in the most inaccessible or isolated corners, one can easily feel and see the traces of different cultures.

The Republic was founded by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk in 1923 who pointed to the end of the long reign of the Ottoman Empire. Since then, Turkey has developed into a modern, democratic state, but at the same time, careful measures ensured that culture and traditions continue to live and evolve. Turkey is currently a candidate for the membership of the European Union. Turkey is a country of diverse cultures, beliefs, ideas, nature and history. This diversity is reflected in the landscape which is the life support and habitat for 70 million people. The Turkish landscape encompasses a vast variety of geographical zones. This landscape has the combined characteristics of the three continents of the world: Europe, Africa and Asia. Between 2000 B.C. and A.D.1500, Anatolia was the center of world civilization manifested in the ruins and monuments which adorn today’s landscape. Turkey is also known for an abundance and diversity of handicrafts, cuisine, music, customs and traditions due to its rich flora, fauna and regional differentiation as well as its imperial legacy.

Turkey’s focal points are its three largest cities: İstanbul, Ankara and İzmir which have become major urban centers by their historical heritage as well as their modern design. Mythology and history are intermingled in Antalya on the Mediterranean coast, together with its beautiful beaches and seaside resorts. Myra near Antalya, is where St. Nicholas is buried. “Cappadocia,” named during the Roman Empire, was a well-known religious center during the Byzantine Empire. Even today cave dwellings in rock cones and village houses of volcanic tuff merge harmoniously into the landscape. The Black Sea region is renowned for its mountainous green landscape. The 14th-century “Sumela Monastery” (Virgin Mary) is perched on a cliff-face 270 meters above a deep gorge. Nemrut Mountain in Adıyaman is where the tomb of King Antiokhos I was built two thousand years ago, surrounded by huge stone heads of gods. In the east, Mount Ararat, where Noah’s ark is believed to be buried, rises to a height of 5,165 meters. On the ancient Silk Road, near Kars, lie the ruins of the medieval city Ani.

These are just a few of the characteristics and excitements of Turkey. In general, Turkey fascinates, astonishes and informs. Perhaps the most thrilling aspect of visiting Turkey is to become an active participant in this landscape.

City description

The city is very important due to its shores of Bosphorus which divides Europe from Asia and also faced against the Sea of Marmara.

Originally the city was a Greek city called Byzantium. In a.d. 328, the Roman Emperor Constantine has chosen a new capital to the empire naming it the New Rome because it was similar to Rome which stood on seven hills. In 330 he named it as Constantinople. The Turks conquered the eastern Roman Empire in 1453 and renamed the city Istanbul—a name obtained from Greek words meaning “into the city”. However, the name Constantinople continued to be used by western countries until 1923, until the capital of Turkey was moved to Ankara.

At the southern end of the Bosporus, there is the Golden Horn that runs inland on the European side. The Golden Horn, which forms a splendid harbour, divides the old part of the city from the new. Old Istanbul stands on the south of the Golden Horn, and contains many mosques which have great domes and tall towers called minarets. The Sultan Ahmed mosque is the finest of them all. There is also the magnificent building of St. Sophia, once a great Christian church, later a mosque and now a museum, and the Seraglio which was once the palace of the sultans, who were not only the rulers of Turkey but also the heads of the Islamic religion. On the shore, there is a railway station linking Istanbul with Bucharest, Vienna and Paris. Passengers going to Ankara and beyond must cross the Bosphorus by ferry to Haydarpaşa.

Bridges across the Golden Horn lead from the old city to Galata and Beyoğlu (formerly Pera), where the main trading, shopping areas and hotels are located. On the Asian shore there is the Scutari where Florence Nightingale nursed the sick and wounded soldiers in the Crimean War. on the south of the Scutari there is Haydarpaşa, the terminal station to Asia.

Higher up the Bosphorus on both shores, there lies many suburbs with old houses, modern villas, castles, cafés and mosques set above the water. In spring, when the wistarias and lilacs and horse chestnuts bloom, the scene becomes beautiful. Another feature of Istanbul is its busy life. Several ships from all over the world, passengers go to the seashore cities of Turkey, ferries run across the Bosporus and to the popular seaside resorts like the Princes’ Island.
