Turkey is heir to many centuries of cultures and history as evidenced by the many ancient historical sites and ruins that remain scattered about the country. As one of the centers of the ancient world, Turkey today boasts a rich and varied culture that has a foot in both Europe and the Middle East. The Turkish people have an unrivalled reputation for hospitality, the cuisine is an epicure's dream, the coastline is breathtaking, and many Turkish cities are dotted with spectacular mosques and castles. Honeymoon couples looking for a cultural adventure will find Turkey to be a great choice as single honeymoon destination or as part of a larger Eastern European adventure.
