The modern Republic of Turkey is the only secular democracy in the Muslim world. It has thousands of kilometers of coastline along the Black, Aegean, and Mediterranean Seas; in addition to its natural and geographic wonders, it is also home to cultural, archaeological, and historical wonders. It literally is home to two wonders of the ancient world. Hospitality is a cornerstone of Turkish culture: visitors are to be treated as “guests sent by God,” and you'll certainly feel at home on the USAC Istanbul program.
