At the crossroads of civilizations, all parts of Turkey are full of a mindblowing number of ancient ruins. Turkey is on the Mediterranean, with 97% of its territory in West Asia and the Middle East, and a small section in South-eastern Europe separated by the Turkish Straits. With the Black Sea to the north, Aegean Sea in the west and Mediterranean Sea to the southwest, Turkey is surrounded by Bulgaria and Greece to the west, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to the northeast, Syria, Iraq and Iran to the southeast.
