Private Turkey Tours – Turkey borders the Black Sea and Georgia and Armenia to the northeast, Iran to the east, Iraq to the southeast, the Syrian Arab Republic and the Mediterranean to the south; the Aegean Sea to the west and Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest. Turkey’s climate, like its location, is varied and complicated to say the least. Because of the country’s geographical conditions it is difficult, if not impossible, to pin-point a climate for the country as a whole.
Turkey is split into 7 different regions- Marmara, Blacksea Coast, Eastern Anatolian, Southeastern Anatolia, Central Anatolia, Mediterranean and Aegean. Each region has a vastly different climate which is primarily affected by its proximity to mountain ranges and different seas and oceans. On the whole, the Marmara; Aegean and Mediterranean coasts have typical Mediterranean climates with hot summers and mild, wet winters. The east of the country is mountainous with warm summers and very cold, snowy winters. Central Turkey, located on an interior plateau has low rainfall and cold or very cold winters.
