History of Turkey
If now, offhand, to recall what we know about Turkey from history, then numerous wars in which this state participated will emerge in our memory. Sometimes, however, there were victories in these military battles. In ancient times, Turkey was the possession of the Greeks, then the Romans, and only then the Arabs. Historians say that the entire territory of Turkey began with the Stone Age and became a stronghold for many world civilizations. Over time, the territory of this country gradually increased, and after several centuries, many other cities were annexed to the state through numerous conquests. For example, in approximately 1520-1566, as a result of such battles, almost all of North Africa went to Turkey. The period of the Russian-Turkish war was also not easy for Turkey. At that time, in 1908, the last sultan, Abdulhamit, was overthrown from his place of honor, and after that a troubled and difficult time began for Turkey. it did not last long, only 2 years, and in 1919 a certain Mustafa Kemal Ataturk began to wage a tough and intense struggle for the liberation of Turkey from oppression. Such a war lasted for about 9 years and bore fruit – in 1923 Turkey was declared a republic and adopted a constitution. The uniqueness of the Turkish state is that it always, at any time of the year, loves to receive numerous guests and tourists who come to relax in this country. This is facilitated by a developed network of hotel business, a variety of hotels, complexes and boarding houses.
