A country of sun and history, Turkey is located where the three continents making up the old world, Asia, Africa and Europe are closest to each other and straddle the point where Europe and Asia meet.

Because of its geographical location, the mainland, Anatolia, has witnessed the mass migration of diverse peoples shaping the course of history. The home to countless civilizations, Anatolia has developed a unique synthesis of cultures, each with its own distinct identity, yet each linked to its predecessors through insoluble treads, therefor Turkey has its uniqueness to it and only people who have visited Turkey will understand these unique differences.

  • Crossing Continents underground.

As Turkey is located on 2 continents it’s hard not to realize the rail link beneath the Bospherous Strait, which is the water way that divides Istanbul sides , the European side and the Asian side. The idea came from the Ottomans more than a century ago, but it wasn’t implemented till 2013.

  • A dessert with chicken.

Tavuk göğsü is a Turkish milk pudding made with shredded chicken breast.[1] It was a delicacy served to Ottoman sultans in the Topkapı Palace. It is today considered a signature dish of Turkey.

The traditional version uses white chicken breast meat. The meat is softened by boiling and separated into very fine fibers or pounded until smooth. The meat is mixed with milk, sugar, cracked rice and other thickeners, and often some sort of flavoring such as cinnamon. The result is a thick pudding often shaped for presentation.

  • Turkish Language isn’t all that difficult.

When comparing the Turkish language to Arabic, the Arabic is way harder. In order to learn Arabic you first lean an outdated version then you learn a dialect, so, in other words, you learn 2 languages while Turkish is just a language. The time need for Turkish is half of that for Arabic.

  • Turks are emotional People.

Turkish people are emotional yes. In all kinds of ways. They get angry easily, sad easily, love strongly, hate strongly. That’s just the way they are, but surely they are one of the most welcoming and lovable people. Their kindness to others will leave you opened jawed and their patriotism is like no other.

  • In Turkey you do not go around smiling at every one.

Smiling at people is seen as a bit unusual. In Turkey, you don’t smile at strangers. Smiles are reserved for people you know, and anyone going around smiling randomly is seen as a little simple.

  • Street cats and dogs are part of the scenery

Free-roaming cats and dogs are found everywhere – from the doorstep of Starbucks on the Bosphorus and the hectic entry of a popular nightclub to luxurious beaches on the Mediterranean coast. They are mostly taken care of by the locals and are quite friendly so there is no need to fear them. There is even a statue of Tombili in Istanbul, a famous street cat that died in 2016.

Part of the enjoyment of visiting Turkey for the first time is the quirky facts and figures that make up this absolutely diverse country. Including history, food, science, produce, exports and many other aspects of society, we hope you enjoyed learning about the things that Turkey is famous or is different from the rest of the world in. From the weird and wonderful to everyday living.
