and other international students speaking about
their experiences at Kadir Has University.Turkey has a unique strategic position at the crossroads of East and West with nearly ten-thousand years of history. Due to its location, surrounded by seas on three sides, Turkey has always been the center of great trade, silk and spice routes. Today, even in the most popular or most inaccessible and isolated corners, one can easily feel the traces of different cultures, be they European or Mid-Eastern, Muslim or Christian.
Dotted with battlegrounds and ruins of castles and palaces of empires gone by, Turkey might well be the world’s most contested country. History buffs can immerse themselves in the treasures of Turkey’s past, stretching back to the dawn of civilization. Those who are more interested in contemporary things, will find it hard to choose from the vast array of opportunities available to them in Istanbul and Turkey. Turkey offers something for everyone, whether you want to soak up the sun and warm waters of the Mediterranean, looking for adventure in Nemrut Daği National Park or seeking culture and nightlife in the modern city of Istanbul, known as the world’s "hippest" city, and filled with outdoor markets, stylish restaurants, pubs, shops, and endless cultural opportunities.
