Turkey is also a bridge between continents, a melting pot of civilizations and Asia’s foothold in Europe. It’s Western-oriented, with plenty of sightseeings — explore the Marmara Sea and blend into the Asian side of Turkeyat which you are able to buy souvenirs like hand-made sweaters and woven rugs in one of the numerous bazaars. 

Hagia Sophia — Built-in 532, the Hagia Sophia stands as a museum that is thought to be the ultimate embodiment of Byzantine architecture, started as an Orthodox Basilica and later it was transformed to a Mosque. Turkish cuisine is exciting and ever-evolving, the coastline is a dream come true, and many Turkish cities are dotted with spectacular mosques and castles.
