Turkey at a Glance


Although Turkey is situated in a geographical location where climatic conditions are quite temperate, the diverse nature of the landscape, and the existence in particular of the mountains that run parallel to the coasts, results 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.


    Three climate zones:

    Mediterranean: Hot and dry summers, mild and wet winters
    Continental: Hot and dry summers, cold and harsh winters
    Black Sea: Temperate and wet all year long.
    Average Temperatures
    By Region (in Celsius):
    Mediterranean: 17.2
    Eastern Anatolia 8.1
    Aegean 4.3
    S. East Anatolia 16.0
    Central Anatolia 0.7
    Black Sea 12.5
    Marmara 14.2
