A repository of unsurpassed cultural wealth gleaned from 5,000 years at the crossroads of civilization, transcontinental Turkey has been the world's greatest epicenter of exchange between East and West since the dawn of civilization.

There were the Persians from the east. Then Alexander the Great from the west, who slashed the Gordion Knot near Ankara then traveled eastward to conquer Asia. That west-to-east cultural tide reversed once more when, 1,000 years ago, Turks originating in Mongolia's Altai Mountains swept down through Persia and claimed Turkey for themselves.

Travel to Turkey and discover the echoes of empire that include Greek, Roman, Persian and Ottoman.
