Turkey - Where history Speaks
Turkey Citizenship by Investment Program.
Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, a country that builds on an old and rich history occupies a unique geographic position, lying partly in Asia and partly in Europe linking the cultural heritage of the west and the east. It stretches across the Anatolian peninsula in Western Asia and Thrace in the Balkans representing a cultural mix. Known for its roaring waterfalls, fascinating valleys, mountain views, and forests of the Black Sea region, it is a delight to watch for nature lovers. Marvels and souvenirs stretching back to the dawn of civilization represent a great history of the country.
Istanbul is the largest city and the financial centre, and Ankara is the capital. Turks form the majority of its population and is highly desirable for many middle eastern families. Turkey does boast a well-developed infrastructure and high standard of living, thereby making it a great choice for real estate investors.
