Depending on which way you look at it, Turkey is the most oriental of European nations, or the most western country of the Middle East. Bordered by Bulgaria and Greece to the west/southwest, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to the north/northeast and Syria, Iraq and Iran to the southeast, with the Aegean, Mediterranean and Black Seas filling the gaps, Turkey occupies a strategic position at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, a veritable melting pot of influences and ethnicities. Yet this is a country proud of its own culture and heritage, treading the tightrope of embracing the modern demands of western 21st century all the while maintaining and celebrating its traditional religious and historical values. Where better to see this in evidence than Istanbul, where the glories of Byzantine and Ottoman Empires provide a remarkable backdrop to a city firmly on the world's social scene.
