Cornucopia’s travel guide

Turkey’s neighbours

Cornucopia's scope extends far beyond Turkey. In this section, we include the Aegean, the Balkans, the Levant and the Caucasus, near neighbours with historic and cultural ties that have all featured in the pages of the magazine. 

1 Greece

Although there are more ancient Greek sites in Anatolia than there are in Greece, it is Greece that is the first stop in the discovery of the classical world, with the added bounty of Byzantine churches and monasteries. 

2 Bosnia-Herzegovina

The famous bridge of Mostar was built by the architect Hayrettin, a student of Sinan, at the command of Süleyman the Magnificent and completed in 1566. Marian Wenzel tells the story of the bridge in Cornucopia 3

5 Crimea

The Crimean Peninsula is a patchwork paradise shaped by a turbulent history. Cornucopia 49 devotes 100 pages to this bewitching land, now part of Russia, and celebrates its Turkish legacy, from coast to coast, mountain to steppe. Simferopol, the capital, is a short flight from Istanbul, a long one via Moscow. In 2014, the easiest way to get around was to hire a car and driver at around £125 for a day.

6 Georgia

Tbilisi (Tiflis) on the Kura River is the still romantic capital of Georgia. Down by Black Sea is steamy subtropical Batumi, and then there are the vineyards, the spectacular mountains and the stunning citadel of Ananur.

7 Azerbaijan

Turkey's eastern neighbour in the south Caucusus is a mountainous land with a rich biodiversity, famous for its carpets and its oil. Its capital, Baku, on the Caspian Sea has a number of Ottoman mansions.

8 Northern Cyprus

Turkish North Cyprus is less developed than the larger Greek-speaking south. It has a number of Byzantine castles and churches and the ancient cities of Salamis, Famagusta and Kyrenia (Girne), the tourist capital.
