    • Founding of the Turkish Republic had been heralded by the opening of the Turkish Grand National Assembly on 23 April 1920. National Assembly's successful administration during the Independence War had secured the founding of the new Turkish State. Caliphate and Sultanate (monarchy) separated and Sultanate abolished on 1 November 1922. Therefore, the administrative ties with the Ottoman Empire were broken. The declaration of Republic was made on 29 October 1923 and Mustafa Kemal unanimously elected as the first President of the Republic. Atatürk made many reforms in order to bring Turkey to the level of contemporary civilizations. Those reforms can be put under five main topics: 1. Political Reforms 2. Social Reforms 3. Juridical Reforms 4. Educational and Cultural Reforms 5. Economical Reforms For more information please visit : www.kultur.gov.tr A.4 Climate Although Turkey is situated in large Mediterranean geographical location where climatic conditions are quite temperate, diverse nature of the landscape, and the existence in particular of the mountains that run parallel to the coasts, result in significant differences in climatic conditions from one region to the other. While the coastal areas enjoy milder climates, the inland Anatolian plateau experiences extremes of hot summers and cold winters with limited rainfall. The Aegean and Mediterranean coasts have cool, rainy winters and hot, moderately dry summers. Annual precipitation in those areas varies from 580 to 1,300 millimeters, depending on location. The Black Sea coast receives the greatest amount of rainfall. The eastern part of that receives 2,200 millimeters annually and is the only region of Turkey that receives rainfall throughout the year. 5 AIESEC Turkey Reception Booklet

Forms such as ‘tilavet’ (reading the Kuran), the ‘ezan’ (the call to prayer), and the ‘temcid’ (a call praising Allah chanted by the muezzin immediately after the morning call to prayer during the months of Rajab, Şaban and Ramadan) all fall under the category of mosque music. During the religious dancing or ceremonies practiced by a number of religious sects, especially the dervishes (Mevevi) and Bektaşi, come under the general heading of Mystical Music. Ottoman Music The form of music today generally known as Türk Sanat Müziği, or Ottoman Classical Music, matured, developed in form and aesthetics and came to assume the identity of a form of classical music in parallel to the establishment, growth and increasing strength of the Ottoman state itself. This variety of music furnished products dealing with many subjects, such as religion, love and war.

Address: Sahilyolu, Yesilyurt,Istanbul Additional link resources about museums : • http://www.bookinturkey.com/en/istanbul/historical_museum.asp • http://www.voyagerbook.com/eng/foto_goster.asp?kategori=muzeler&sehir= • http://www.miniaturk.com/ A.5.4 Traditional customs Clothing was first introduced to protect man from the elements. It has come by its present forms as a result of the influence of social and moral values. With the passing time, a wide variety in forms of clothing emerged. These differences were the result of social and economic structure, geography, the materials available and climate. Daily, work and special day clothes are different. Hair styles during a wedding and after the bridal chamber differ. In markets, it is easy to identify which village people live in just from their clothes. Today in Anatolia, there are differences even between the clothing worn in different neighborhoods of the same village. In the very earliest times, everyone in a particular tribe would wear clothes that defined his or her social status. More than an obligation, this was an understanding carried on by tradition. Clothing and eben hair styles reflected this same conception. 9 AIESEC Turkey Reception Booklet
    • A.5.5.Food When one talks about the Turkish cuisine, the term should be understood as the totality of foods and beverages which provide nutrition to the people living in Turkey, the ways of preparing and preserving them; techniques, equipment and utensils required for this, eating manners and all the practices and beliefs which are developed around this cuisine. Turkish Cuisine, which in general consists of sauced dishes prepared with cereals, various vegetables and some meat, soups, cold dishes cooked with olive oil, pastry dishes and dishes made from wild vegetation has also produced a series of health foods such as pekmez, yogurt, bulgur etc. The eating habits which reflect the tastes changing from one location to the next, gains a new meaning and near - sacredness on special occasions, celebrations and ceremonies. Turkish Cuisine, while rich in variety and taste-bud friendly, also contains examples which could provide a source for healthy and balanced diets and vegetarian cuisines. A.5.6. Language The Turkish language belongs to the Ural-Altaic group and has an affinity with the Finno-Hungarian languages. Turkish is written in the alphabet and is spoken by at least 150 milion people around the world. The founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal, the father of the Turks, ATATÜRK believed that Turkey should benefit from the culture of the West in order to reach the level of contemporary modern civilisations. It is because of this that a version of the Latin alphabet reflecting Turkish phonetics was adopted in 1928. The Turkish Language institute was established in 1932 to carry out linguistic research and contribute to the natural development of the language. A.6.Political Structure The Republic of Turkey is based on a secular, democratic, pluralistic and parliamentary system, where human rights are protected by law and social justice. The Grand National Assembly is elected by popular vote and the nation is governed by the Prime Minister. Turkey is a founding member of OECD, the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization, a member of NATO, the European Council, the Islamic Conference Association, and an associate member of the European Union. A.7. Economy 10 AIESEC Turkey Reception Booklet

The monetary unit is the Turkish lira (TL), which comes in bank notes of 250.000; 500.000; 1.000.000, 5.000.000, 10.000.000 and 20.000.000.

Its wide-open roads, large hotels, restaurants and government offices distinguish the city. Besides, there are several tourist attractions in the city making it an ideal destination for the tourists. Ankara is about as European as Turkey gets. There are touches of the mystical east if you know where to look but the vast majority of the city is 20th century through and through. Ankara is a huge university town and you'll find the streets of Kizilay and the bars of Sakarya thronged with students for most of the year. Capital city status and the presence of language schools and the above mentioned universities has brought a sizeable ex pat community to Ankara and all this adds to the western feel of the place. All the wings of the military are based here and Saturday afternoon finds Genclik Park (fountains, funfair, boat rides) full of strolling conscripts in their various uniforms. A lot of foreigners are here on business but tourism is beginning to have an impact on various aspects of the city. Ankara is a reasonably convenient place to base yourself if you want to travel Anatolia, Cappadocia or the Black Sea coast and a growing number of tour operators and related service industries are catering to tourists. There is accommodation here at all levels, with prices pegged below those of Istanbul or the south coast, and the new bus station (ASTI) is probably the most useful transport hub in Turkey with services to just about anywhere that's feasible (The Lebanon is only 16 hours away if you're feeling adventurous). 23 AIESEC Turkey Reception Booklet
