Long considered a crossroads between Europe and the Middle East, Turkey has territory both in Western Asia and Eastern Europe, with the Black Sea to its north and the Mediterranean Sea to its south. Because of its strategic location and long history, Turkey’s culture today reflects both European and Middle Eastern influences.
Istanbul, Turkey’s most well known city, lies on the Bosphorus Strait, which divides Europe from Asia. Istanbul is a popular destination for travelers because of its rich history. The city is home to the iconic Hagia Sophia Museum, a former Greek Orthodox church and mosque; the Blue Mosque, a historic mosque built in the early 17th century; and the Dolmabahce Palace, a former sultan’s palace that is today a museum.
Turkey’s official language is Turkish, but many people in its larger cities speak English.
