Modern Turkey was founded in 1923 at the end of Ottoman Empire and lies at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Turkey borders Bulgaria, Greece, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Syria, Iraq and Iran. Tulips are native to Turkey and were introduced to the Netherlands by Turkish traders in the 16th century. Noah’s Ark landed on Mount Ararat. The last meal on Noah’s Ark was a sweet and sour pudding made from over 20 ingredients – and this pudding is still served today.
