Turkey is a huge country, and it is no wonder that it provides many opportunities for an unforgettable vacation.

Although most of its geographical terrain places Turkey among the mountainous countries of the Middle East, its position has long brought it into close contact with the West, so that the culture of today's Turkey relies heavily on Europe.

Istanbul is, with the exception of summer resorts, the main tourist destination in Turkey.

You should not miss Cappadocia, a destination that boasts unusual attractions - it hides underground cities, a religious village, where you can find sculptures resembling chimneys, and Goreme National Park, which combines a collection of ancient churches, caves and other monuments. For a truly special experience, board one of the many hot air balloons at sunset or sunrise - the amazing views will amaze you.
