Living in Turkey
Turkey is a country at the crossroads between Europe and Western Asia. It borders a wide range of countries, including Syria and Greece, and has coastlines adjacent to the Black Sea in the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. The country has a population of around 80 million, making it the 16th most populated country in the world. Its capital city is Ankara, but its main cultural and economic hub is Istanbul, which is also larger than the capital. Turkey is a deeply historical country and possesses monuments of past civilisations that date back to 9600 BC. In more recent history, the Ottoman Empire ruled, but was ultimately defeated in the First World War. After this time, Turkey was a one-party state, but became democratic in 1946. Even more recently, the current President Erdogan has been heavily criticised for his human rights record and brutal response to the failed military coup of 2016. Tourism has been a rapid growing industry in Turkey for some time now, and this is due to easier transport links but also a growing awareness of the various natural and human attractions that the country possesses. These include the city of Istanbul, the numerous beaches on the country’s coast, but also the more mountainous regions in the east of the country. 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites are in Turkey, reflecting the rich heritage and history of Turkey.
