Turkey Trivia: Turkey has a population of about 76 million and is about the physical size of Texas. Istanbul is the largest city with a estimated population of 14 million. 99% of the population are Muslim. The country shares borders with 8 other countries, including Syria, Iran and Iraq. But we are a long way from Crimea! Our trip does not take us anywhere near the surrounding countries so we are not concerned about our safety. It is the only country that is on two continents.
Turkey has a vast difference in geography, ranging from sea level up to Mt Ararat which is 5,137 meters (16,854 ft) high. In 2012 Turkey ranked 6th in the world for tourism.
