Turkey, known officially as the Republic of Turkey, is a Euroasian country that stretches across the Anatolian peninsula in western Asia and Thrace (Rumelia) in the Balkan region of south-eastern Europe. Turkey borders eight countries, with the Black Sea on the north and the Mediterranean on the south.

Antalya, is a city on the Mediterranean coast of south-western Turkey, and the capital city of Antalya Province. Situated on coastal cliffs, Antalya is surrounded by mountains. Development and investment, begun in the 1970s, have transformed the city into an international resort.

In 2007, Antalya Airport's number of passengers on international flights surpassed the total number at Istanbul Ataturk Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport for the first time, officially earning the title of "the capital of Turkish tourism"
