Turkey has been home to many civilisations,lying as it does at a strategic geographical junction where Europe and Asia meet.The country is actually located on both continents.
Anatolia, the land on Asia, is called the cradle of the civilisations
Today, East meets West in Turkey's culture and government as well. Formerly center of the Islamic Ottoman Empire,Turkey became a republic in 1923.And the new leader, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk made series of reforms and brought in European technology. This set the stage for rapid modernization and the adoption of Western systems of law, education, and politics.
You can find the first of many things in Turkey,like first pottery , first village (Catalhoyuk), first written trade agrement, first money(?), first writing(?)... etc.
