  Turkish Currency:  Turkish Lira

The country bridging Europe and Asia is full of culture and tradition which absolutely must be seen. A unique blend of middle eastern soukhs, islamic buildings and traditions with millenia of trade and conquest has made Turkey a true gem for the discerning visitor. Alongside all the sights and sounds of Istanbul (and with the number of mosques there is a lot on the sound front!), Turkey offers something for almost every type of tourist. Fancy relaxing by the beach? Shores aplenty. Want to sample the delights of ancient history? Monuments are scattered all over the country from across the ages. Heck. Do you want to go skiing? Well guess what - Turkey has skiing resorts too!
