Turkey it vast peninsula, covering an area of 780,000 sq km and linking Asia to Europe through the Sea of Marmara and Straits of Istanbul and Çanakkale. Across the sea of Marmara, the triangular shaped thrace is the continuation of Turkey on the European continent. Anatolia is rectangular in outline, 1600 km long and 600 km wide. It is characterised by a central plateau surrounded by chains of mountains on the north, west and south and a rugged mountainous region in the east with an average elevation of 1050 m.

The northern Anatolia mountain range, and the Taurus range in the south, stretch like arcs, becoming ever dancer in the east. In the west, however, the mountains descend gently towards the sea.
