Turkey is a popular tourist destination known for its Mediterranean coastline, impressive mosques, and stunning natural scenery.

But there’s also a lot that travelers probably don’t know, just some of the most interesting, and surprising facts about Turkey are given below. There are also a few fun facts to keep the little ones entertained.

Despite being the largest city in the country, and the most visited, Istanbul is not the Turkish capital. In fact, many people are surprised to learn that Ankara, and not Istanbul, is the capital of Turkey.

Although not the capital, Istanbul is a fascinating city featuring impressive mosques and medieval architecture.

One thing that makes Istanbul unique is that it is the only city in the world to span Asia and Europe geographically. Istanbul is divided by the Bosphorus River: the west bank lies in Europe and the east back in Asia.
