Modern Turkey - Background.

Modern Turkey was founded in 1923, when Mustafa Kemal, celebrated founder of Turkey and known as Ataturk, successfully united the Turkish people after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. He set in place many social, legal, and political reforms, bringing Turkey into line with its European counterparts. Notable among these is the constitutional change in 1928, removing Islam as the state religion, making Turkey a purely secular republic.

Since his time Turkey has, for the most part, been ruled by a democratically elected government. In 1945 Turkey joined the UN, and in 1952, NATO. In 1964, Turkey became an associate member of the European Community, and over the last 10 years has taken steps to strengthen its economy and democracy in the hope of joining the EU.

 

Geography

Location

Turkey rests in two continents; Europe and Asia. Its coastline includes the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, the Aegean, and the Bosporus. The European side is mostly undulating hills, while on the Anatolian side, the geography moves from wide plains to soaring mountains, where many peaks exceed 3000 meters. The tallest mountains are the Taurus, Koroglu and Pontic ranges, with Mt Ararat in the East as the largest at 5,165 meters. Along the Mediterranean coast, the land is very fertile, and mostly lower, with exceptions around the Antalya region. Turkey's major rivers include the Tigras, Kizilirmak, Sakarya and Euphrates, and the largest lake is Lake Van.
