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. Turkey map is surrounded on three sides by the sea: The Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara on the West Coast, the Eastern Mediterranean Sea in the south and the Black Sea in the north. There is only one small physicalconnection to Europe: the two impressive bridges across the Bosphorus, connecting european and asian parts of Istanbul. Sea side resorts like Antalya
are very popular with tourists from Europe.
