Turkey has an area of 779.452
sq.km., 97 % of which is in Asia and 3 % in Europe. The land boundaries are 2.753 km. long
and the shores 8.333 km. in total. The Asian portion of Turkey has been called Anatolia
and the European side Thrace. Two are separated from each other by the Çanakkale
(Dardennelles) and the Bosphorus Straits in Istanbul . Turkey's neighbors
include Bulgaria, Greece, Iran,
Iraq, Syria and Armenian Republic. Anatolia is
a big plateau which rises in elevation as one goes towards the east and from which 15
rivers flow including the Dicle (Tigris) and Firat
(Euphrates) . There are innumerable lakes in Anatolia which is like a peninsula surrounded
on the north by the Black Sea, on the west by the Aegean
and on the south by the Mediterranean. The Pontic chain
in the north and the Taurus in the south are steep mountain ranges
running parallel to the sea.
It is always possible to
live in one of four seasons in Turkey because of its seven separate climatic zones . While
the weather in Central Anatolia is very hot and dry in summer but dark and intensely cold
in winter with heavy snow towards Eastern Anatolia ; it is very hot and humid in summer
and warm with moderate rainfall in winter in the Mediterranean and Aegean areas , though
summers are not as excessively hot in the Aegean as in the Mediterranean . Swimming is
possible from May to October in these areas. The climate in the Marmara Region which
includes the Thrace, is temperate with hot summers and damp, cold and gloomy winters.
Swimming in the Marmara is possible from June to September as in the Black Sea Region
which has a temperate climate with high rainfall all year round.
Half of Turkey's approx. 65 million population
live in the rural areas. Istanbul's population, which is the largest; has
about 12 million people . The capital Ankara has 4
million , Izmir 4 million, Adana 2,5 million and Bursa
1,5 million. Turkish, which is written in the Latin
alphabet, is spoken by 150 million people in the world. 99% of the population is Muslim.
The minorities are as free as Muslims in the terms of language and religious instruction.
The history of mankind in Anatolia
began one million years ago. From 30 B.C. , the Romans
were in control. In 395 A.D. , the Byzantine Empire was
established .The Turks came to Anatolia at the end of the 11th. century.
Following Seldjuk period and the Principality Era , the Ottoman
Empire came to power. After the Ottomans lost World War 1, the first Turkish
Grand National Assembly met on April 23, 1920, under the leadership of Mustafa
Kemal. He was chosen as the first President, and Ankara became the capital.
Turkey is a national, democratic and secular state which
rose on the principle of human rights and relies on the principles of law and social
justice. Turkey is member of NATO , OECD and Council of Europe and Islamic Development
