Kerpe met tourism when a small fishing harbor. It is a Western Black Sea in a green way. Kerpe has calm sea and fine sandy beaches, the rocks of the Black Sea by way of wave vixenish Istanbul, Izmit, Sakarya, such as proximity to urban centers combined with the prejudice that could be heaven. Hit the road from Istanbul, and up to two hours after the first extended period of time and people who go to Kerpe couldn't believe their eyes,and said "Was it this so close to Bodrum " without thinking any more.And they couldn't give up KERPE.

This panorama was taken in Turkey, Middle East

This is an overview of Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.

The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.

Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!

When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.

Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.
