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. Occupying a strategic position at the crossroads of Europe and Asia Turkey is 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.
