EXPAT IN TURKEY
Community Website for Expats in Turkey
Turkey, where East meets West. In this land spanning from the Aegean to upper Mesopotamia, Turkey has been at the cradle of civilization for several millennia. From Hittite ruins to Greco-Roman bath houses; from the grandeur of Ottoman mosques and palaces to the stately monuments of the post-Atatürk era, Turkey finds itself carving an identity as it draws from its past and looks to the future.
As you find your own way among the hustle and bustle of Istanbul, Europe's largest city, or find yourself on a bus to Mount Ararat (Agri Dagi in Turkish), you're guaranteed to find a curious face eager to share some sweets with a foreigner and linger over a glass of tea, sharing with the guest their culture and awaiting the impressions of those who come from afar.
Whether your idea of a splendid time is peering through centuries-old museums; savouring piquant döner kebap or fried seafood delicacies that were caught the same morning; or engaging in adventure sports, Turkey will tickle your senses in a way that will move you to say, "en büyük Türkiye!" (Turkey is the greatest!)
