The vast majority of Turkey lies on the Asian continent, only a small part on the European continent. Exactly on the border of Europe and Asia is Istanbul, the most populous city in Turkey is home to football clubs Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray. Istanbul has three airports, namely Istanbul New Airport and Istanbul Atatürk Airport in the European part and Istanbul Sabiha Gökcen Airport in the Asian part. Istanbul New Airport was officially opened on 29 October 2018 and will eventually replace Istanbul Atatürk Airport as the largest airport in Turkey. The capital Ankara is little visited by tourists, in contrast to the Turkish coastal towns such as Antalya, Alanya, Bodrum and Marmaris.
