    Turkey holiday highlights 

    With a history of mythology and ancient civilisations, diverse landscapes and breathtaking beaches, Turkey has a wealth of experiences and adventures to offer visitors. Here are our top ten things to do when on holiday in Turkey.

    Turkey overview

    Turkey’s history goes back to ancient civilisations including the Roman Empire, but its most significant historical phase began in the 13th century when Seljuk Turks arrived in Anatolia. This was the start of the Ottoman Empire, which grew over the centuries to become a powerful and influential state, reaching its peak in the 16th and 17th centuries under Suleiman the Magnificent. After years of decline, the empire collapsed at the end of World War I and a secular republic was founded in 1923 under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. 

    Turkey’s culture has been shaped by the influence of its history and its location as a bridge between Europe and Asia. Turkish culture is a wonderful blend of the ancient traditions of past civilisations and modern influences. Traditional music, dance and crafts like carpet weaving and pottery are cherished expressions of the nation’s identity.  

    Religion also has a significant impact on traditions and customs – the main religion practised in Turkey is Islam. Celebratory festivals and ceremonies blend the country’s culture and religion, captivating both visitors and locals. 

    What to eat

    Journey through Turkey’s cuisine, from meze appetisers and Turkish kebabs to traditional street food and sweet treats. Experience local delicacies, from hummus and baba ghanoush to tabbouleh and dolma.  

    No trip to Turkey would be complete without sampling a shish, doner, Adana or Iskender. Or perhaps try Manti, Turkish dumplings filled with minced meat and served with yoghurt and garlic sauce, often topped with sumac and melted butter.  

    For a sweet treat it can only be Baklava – the famous Turkish dessert constructed of layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and honey.
