Turkish Weather

With such a large landmass, Turkey enjoys a variety of climates, earning the country the nickname ‘the land of four seasons’ (In Turkish: dort mevsim). From the temperate climate of the Black Sea region, where 80% of the world’s hazlenuts are produced, to the continental climate of the interior, and the Mediterranean climates of the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, Turkey’s weather systems are geographically diverse.
