The history of the land we now know as the Republic of Turkey can be traced back to 25,000 BC. Surrounded by three external seas, (the Black Sea, the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea), Turkey’s geographical position links Europe to Asia.
The stories of Turkey excite us with exotic tales and legends of people, battles and the rise and fall of great empires. These stories include The Trojan war, The legend of King Midas, the reign of Alexander the Great, the marriage of Antony and Cleopatra, and the rise and collapse of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. In more recent history, events including the Crimean war, the war at Gallipoli, and the formation of the new republic under Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, keep Turkey as a place of historic interest and significance.
