[The Climate]


It’s possible to live the four seasons and different climates in Turkey, which is situated in the temperate climate zone. While some people are taking sea bath, the others can view the snowed mountains at the same time.

In addition to this climate, Turkey is also under the influence of the Mediterranean Climate, which is dry in the summer.

The climate may differentiate sharply among the region with respect to their distance to the sea level, and the location of the ridges. South to the Mediterranean, the Aegean, and the Marmora, being the summers hot and dry and being the winters soft and rainy, is the strong impact of the Mediterranean Climate. A more temperate and rainy climate dominates the Black Sea Region. The inner regions are under the influence of the steppe climate, which means that the summers are hot and rarely rainy; the winters are cold and snowy. In the eastern Anatolia, the summers are cool, and the winters are very cold and snowy. In the Southeastern Region, in addition to the summer being hot and dry, the winters don’t bring much cola to the region.
