The city, which is located in both Asia and Europe, has been the capital city for many civilizations for thousands of years throughout its history. Turkey has been called the World’s Island, a central meeting point of three continents – Asia, Europe and Africa via the Mediterranean and over centuries was used as the passage way for invaders both going from West to East and from East to West.

To its south you find Syria, Iraq and Iran; on its east lays Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan former Russian satellite nations. To the West, Turkey borders Greece and Bulgaria-European Union nations. It connects to the Mediterranean, Black and Aegean seas, and overlooks the all-important Bosporus and Dardanelles sea gates, linking Central Asia to the Mediterranean. In a world swayed by energy needs, its nexus location translates into a crucial energy transit hub for Europe, Iran and Russia
