THE BRIDGE TO THE WORLD
You have many reasons to come to Turkey! Turkey is an attraction to everyone in the world because of the spiritual and physical features which are unique to each single city. For example, İstanbul is the only city in the world that connects two continents. The city, which is located in both Asia and Europe, has been the capital city for many civilizations for thousands of years throughout its history. Turkey is more than a bridge between two continents. Actually, Turkey is a country in which East and West meet in a much broader sense. Turkey has been successful in blending these two cultures and being home to cultural and historical richness and legacy for thousands of years.
