Turkey is located in Southeastern Europe and Western Asia. Exactly on the border of Europe and Asia, you will find Istanbul. The most populous city in Turkey is home to football clubs Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray. Istanbul currently has two airports. Istanbul Atatürk Airport is located at a short distance from the city centre, Istanbul Sabiha Gökcen Airport is located at a greater distance from the city. In October 2018, a third airport will be opened in Istanbul, northwest of the city. The capital Ankara is little visited by tourists, in contrast to Turkish coastal towns such as Antalya, Alanya and Marmaris.
