Turkey & Greece; two tourism countries

Tourism is a sector which combines cultures and people. Sometimes the origin doesn’t matter. It is the absolute definition of tourism.

There are some countries that are touristic in the world such as Turkey and Greece. They are rivals in tourism for normal conditions. They compete each other to attract international tourists. By using the national and international features, we can be considered as rival. Turkey and Greece are the countries where the history flow. Their backgrounds are so deep that they are dated back to ancient times and they are linked in history.

Some features of two countries are alike and they have a common historical background. For example, historical leaders such as Alexander the Great had passed on both countries and they left priceless legacy on those countries. Also they are very similiar up to the cultural basis.

Greek tourism is based on the islands mostly. They have a fantastic beauty, I have to confess this. They are special sites. Volcanos have shaped this region hundred centuries ago. They are still active. It is a active earthquake area. As you see above, blue and white are the characteristic colours of the traditional architecture.

This is the fact that we aren’t in a normal period. Due to COVID outbreak, tourism sector is going down.

Don’t you think that Turkey and Greece can establish a tourism friendship? Also it will feed the peace in the region.


Tourism is a bridge among the various cultures. My passion is to contribute tourism and my country's publicity. I am a volunteer to achieve this goal.

Greetings from Greece!
Tourism friendship as you said, on a basis of mutualism and understanding, is crucial and beneficial! Moreover, instead of filling the region with battleships, mines and things that destroy the environment (Ukraine and West russia are two great examples), the region can become a real paradise with nice hotels, cruises, exceptional food and so on.
I think that communication and understanding will be the vehicle towards this and possibly one day it will be achieved!
