Turkey is located between Europe and Asia, which gives it a culture full of contrasts. The Muslim religion is predominant, and getting to know the mosques, hearing the call to prayer, and seeing firsthand their traditions, such as the way they dress, the dances, and Ramadan, is very enriching. But at the same time, it is a modern country and in Istanbul, it is possible to see luxurious neighborhoods where fashion and partying are lived in a very "western" way.
Its most famous city, Istanbul, has more than 3 thousand mosques. The architecture, domes, mosaics, and decoration make each one of them worth a visit. The ones on the Asian side are usually less crowded, if you manage to visit any of these, you will experience the particular peace that mosques offer, an unforgettable sensation.
When you visit the geological formations and thermal pools of Pamukkale or the curious rock formations of Cappadocia you will have the feeling of being on another planet. You can also visit one of the saltiest lakes in the world, discover other cities such as Ankara or Izmir, beautiful beaches, ancient cities of incalculable archaeological value such as Ephesus or Sida, and an infinite number of markets and bazaars to lose yourself in.
The Mediterranean climate and the wonderful nature of Turkey allow us to summer almost 6 months a year especially in some parts of the south, and particularly in Antalya and Bodrum, which are the most popular sun and beach tourist destinations. The beaches are splendid and the sea, especially the Aegean Sea coast, is incredible. It is a sea of slightly cool, turquoise water where yachts are the favorite way to visit all the beaches.
Each region of Turkey has its own cuisine, including distinctive ingredients and unique recipes. As such, Turkish cuisine is much more than tasty kebab and baklava, like fresh seafood and meze, a world of desserts, huge breakfasts, Ottoman classics, vegetable dishes, and more.
