Turkey is a country of immense natural beauty. Its mountainous countryside and extraordinarily beautiful coastline from the Black sea, through the Aegean and on to the Mediterranean is host to countless historic monuments. Istanbul, where Europe and Asia meet, is one of the fastest growing cities in the world.
