A fascinating country, Turkey is geographically part of both Europe and Asia, and has historically acted as a cultural bridge between the East and the West. Contributing to Turkey's important history is the fact that it controls the strategic waterways "the Dardanelles" and "the Bosphorus", linking the Mediterranean to the Black Sea.
Between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries the Ottoman Sultans ruled Turkey and they dominated not only Europe but also the Middle East and most of North Africa. However, many centuries before this, Turkey was occupied by earlier civilisations such as the Hittites, Ancient Greece and the Roman and Byzantine empires. This eventful history is just one of the reasons why holidays to Turkey appeal to so many, because it has such a wealth of antiquities as a result of its diverse and interesting past.
Turkey really has layer upon layer of history to uncover, ancient palaces, impressive mosques and churches, and remarkable Greek and Roman ruins. This country is also home to no less than ten World Heritage Sites, so wherever you choose to spend your holidays in Turkey, you are sure to be within easy reach of one of the many fascinating ancient sites.

A highlight of holidays to Turkey has to be the wonderful Turkish cuisine which is cooked from fresh, local ingredients; prices are reasonable in local restaurants and service usually of a very high standard. For the Turks, a meal is a social event, so you can relax and take your time over your food. An evening meal begins with the 'meze', lots of small plates of hot and cold starters, which can almost be a meal in themselves. There are more types of kebab than you have ever imagined, made from succulent meat and a huge variety of fish and seafood available in most seaside resorts, freshly caught that day. To accompany your meal try the excellent local wine, the refreshing lager, Efes, or the national tipple, raki. You should round off your meal with a cup of thick, sweet Turkish coffee and a morsel of the world-famous Turkish Delight. Breakfast in most Turkish hotels is fresh white bread, crumbly 'white' cheese, (similar to feta), olives, jam or honey and often tomatoes and cucumber, which is traditionally washed down with strong, sweet black tea, served in a glass.
One of the greatest things about this lovely country is its diversity, there is so much to do here and you couldn't possibly see everything in just one holiday.
