Turkey straddles two continents, Europe and Asia. It is bordered by three seas: the Aegean, Black and Mediterranean. Turkey is a secular country; however, Islam prevails among other religions. The country has a rich culture with roots stretching back to the 13th century and the creation of the Ottoman Empire. Turkey’s cuisine is known around the world, and its nature can justifiably be called one of the most diverse in terms of flora and fauna.
