The total area of turkey 783,356 km² (302,455 sq. mi). The landscape includes Lakes, Mountains, Forrest. Total population is 80,810,525. The Capital of Turkey is Ankara. Their National Language is Turkish. Out of total population Muslim (Sunni majority and Alevi minority) majority with small minorities of Eastern Rite Christians.
The climate of Turkey is continental so the best time to travel to Turkey in Summer (May to October).
To get around Turkey, there are two feasible options for road or air transportation. Ferries and railways are almost obsolete in Turkey. On the other hand, you can use ferries to go to the Greek Islands. With the start of new private airlines serving domestic destinations, air transportation has become cheaper and new cities are being served. You can rent a car provided that you are used to driving in chaotic traffic. Turkish traffic is hard to deal with, but major cities are connected with motorways up to the Western standards. Another alternative could be hiring a driver and a guide, especially a good option for large families or groups.
Turkey really is a curious mix of the west and the east. Turkey is the most oriental of western nations, or, depending on the point of view, the most occidental of eastern nations. Influences are from Balkan country or in Greece in the northwestern and western regions of Turkey. Southeastern reaches of the country exhibit little if any cultural differences from Turkey's southern and eastern neighbors.
Turkish cuisine combines the Mediterranean, Central Asian, Caucasian, and Arabic influences, and is extremely rich. Beef is the most important meat (lamb is also common but pork is very hard to find although not illegal), and eggplant (aubergine), onion, lentil, bean, tomato, garlic, and cucumber are the primary vegetables. An abundance of spices is also used. The main staples are rice (pilav), bulgur wheat and bread, and dishes are typically cooked in vegetable oil or sometimes butter. Vegetarian restaurants are not common and can be found only in very central parts of big cities and some of the tourist spots. However, every good restaurant offers vegetable dishes, and some of the restaurants offering traditional "ev yemeği” (“home food”) have olive-oil specialties which are vegetarian in content. In the Aegean region, where all kinds of wild herbs are eaten as main meals, either cooked or raw, dressed with olive oil. A vegetarian would have real difficulty in searching for food especially in Southeastern. Some Turkish desserts are modeled on the sweet and nutty Arabic kind: famous dishes include baklava, a layered pastry of finely ground nuts and phyllo dough soaked in honey and spices, and Turkish Delight (lokum), a gummy confection of rosewater and sugar. There are also many more kinds of desserts prepared using milk predominantly, such as kazandibi, keşkül, muhallebi, sütlaç, tavuk göğsü, güllaç etc.
Although soccer is the most popular sport in Turkey, basketball, volleyball, handball, track-and-field and wrestling (which is considered the ancestral sport) are also popular. Furthermore, important international successes have been attained in weightlifting, boxing, taekwon-do, judo and archery in recent years.
Famous places include Ankara, Antalya, Bodrum, Bursa, Edirne, Istanbul, Izmir, Konya, Trabzon, Urfa, Ani, Cappadocia, Ephesus, Gallipoli, Mount Nemrut, Ölüdeniz, Pamukkale, Sümela, Uludağ.
