Travel diaries were written about this place long before Turkey became a hit-holiday destination for sun and culture-seekers. Turkey is ready to delight visitors with its mysterious past, an Odyssey of authentic cuisine developed over 500 years and amazes with historical imprints which capture the stories of time.
