It’s hard to recall any other country with such interesting and unique history. Many civilizations have been settled in Turkey thousands of years BC so it’s not so strange to found Greek, Roman and Byzantine remains and ruins here. Turkey’s geographical position is in between Europe, Asia and Middle East and it’s surrounded by the Black, Aegean and Mediterranean Sea. This position has helped Turkey to combine the best from all sides, but due to the size, Turkey has influenced many countries, especially the ones on Balkan.
Turkey as we know today was established in 1923 by the Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and today is modern country with strong and fast growing economy. There are also many interesting and cool facts about Turkey – you might not have known that, but Turkey is the largest hazelnut producer, place where Troy is located as well as two of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - Mausoleum at Halicarnassus and Temple of Artemis.

Turkey Blue Cruise
Gulet cruise in Turkey runs from April to late October and mostly covers the area between Kusadasi on west to Antalya on east including beautiful towns such as Bodrum, Marmaris, Göcek, Fethiye and countless coves and bays. But, how it all begun? Who can we thank for transformation of sleepy sponge-diving and fisherman villages and towns into the most desired tourist destinations? We could definitely credit Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı, Azra Erhat and Sabahattin Eyüboğlu for this. They were group of writers who set on coastal trips to rediscover Turkish history and breathtaking landscapes. These trips were made on fishermen boats called gulets. The term “Blue Cruise” (Turkish “Mavi Yolculuk”) that was created back then was a strong basis for popularizing this type of vacation and holidays worldwide. Today, gulet cruise is, except in Tukey, very popular and present in many other countries on Mediterranean. Since this is an exceptional way to spend your holidays in Turkey, we will shortly describe each of the possible destinations.
