Turkey is a bridge between cultures, continents, centuries and peoples.
Anatolia, known as "the cradle of civilizations, hosts the most rich and
diverse civilizations in the history of mankind. The young Republic of
Turkey established after the First World War was constructed upon this
surface, which has accumulated the riches of many civilizations and cultures
including the Hattie, Hittite, Phrygian, Urartian, Lycian, Lydian, Ionian,
Persian, Macedonian, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman of past centuries.
A sultan's palace, a great imperial mosque, a church of early Christians or
a museum filled with artistic treasures of ancient Greece and Rome.
Anatolia is also home of the main universal religions. It is a sacred land,
a mystical realm sheltering a wealth of religious diversity. Places of
worship are constructed side by side in Turkey; people lived freely
according to their believes during the centuries and continues to worship in
total liberty. In secular Turkey, which maintains the tolerance of Anatolia,
"belief" is the most sacred human value, the most important virtue. In
Turkey, where the majority religion is Islam, Judaism, Christianity and
various sects and beliefs coexist in harmony. This unique harmony is
inherited from history, from our forefathers, and from the soil of Anatolia.
Along with its bountiful sunshine, which lasts for eleven months of the
year, and its rich natural beauty, Turkey offers you have all four seasons
in 24 hours just by travelling from west end to the east end of the country.
It is possible to go swimming in the cool blue waters of the Mediterranean
coast while it rains in the northern Black Sea region and snows in the East.
As much as it is a country of trees, mountains, streams, lakes and over 9000
species of flowers, Turkey is also a land of animals, especially birds. Over
four hundred different kinds of birds live in this land.
Most of the world's major cities have flights to Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir,
Antalya and Dalaman International Airports. There are also charter flights
to these airports, and domestic flights to many popular tourist resorts.
Dalaman Airport is only 50 km to Fethiye town centre and it is here that we
