Geography

Turkey's varied landscapes are the product of complex earth movements that have shaped the region over thousands of years. The country is surrounded by sea on three sides: the Aegean Sea to the west, the Black Sea to the north and the Mediterranean to the south, all dominated by high mountain ranges along the coastlines.

The Ottoman empire at its height encompassed most of the Middle East and Eastern Europe until the foundations of modern-day Turkey were laid by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.
