About Turkey

Turkey, known as “the cradle of civilization,” is the birthplace of many great cultures and is a synthesis of east and west, geographically bridging Europe and Asia. Throughout its rich history Turkey has been prominent as a center of commerce because of its land connections to three continents and the sea surrounding it on three sides.

Turkey is a republic based on secular, democratic, and pluralistic principles. The Turkish Republic was established in 1923 by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and has a parliamentary system of government that constitutionally protects personal rights and freedoms. As a result, Turkey has the divisions of power that one would expect: judicial, legislative, and executive. In 1945 Turkey joined the UN, and in 1952 it became a member of NATO. Turkey is also a founding member of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization, the European Council, the Islamic Conference Association, and an associate member of the European Union.

Geographically, Turkey is generally divided into seven regions -- the Black Sea region, the Marmara region, the Aegean, the Mediterranean, Central Anatolia, the East Anatolian and Southeast Anatolia regions – offering a wide variety of travel experiences from excellent downhill skiing in winter to some of the world's most spectacular yachting and diving to fascinating historical and cultural tours throughout the country.
