Turkey is partly in Europe and partly in Asia. The boundary between Europe and Asia goes through Istanbul. However, t he European part of Turkey is less than 10% of the country. Part of Turkey is in Europe, but most of it is in Asia
Europe >.< Geographically, the border between Asia and Europe is theBosphorus, a strait of water that joins the Mediterranean Sea tothe Black Sea. This runs right through the city of Istanbul.Therefore, both Istanbul and the whole nation of Turkey are both inAsia and Europe. The majority is actuall…y in Asia. But politically, Modern Turkey considers itself to be an activeEuropean Nation. It has applied for membership of the EuropeanUnion and is a member of NATO. It's football (soccer) team play inthe European qualifying of World Cup and European trophies. It is amember of UEFA. Turkey also takes part in the annual Eurovision song contest. Historically, Turkey is much more of an Asian country. It was partof the cradle of civilization where the first cities appeared (making it much like neighboring Iraq and Iran). It was known inantiquity as Asia Minor. But its colonization by the Ancient Greeksbrought it into the European sphere of influence. The establishmentof Byzantium (Constantinople, now Istanbul) as the second city ofthe Roman Empire made it very European. The capture of the city bythe Ottoman Empire (Asian Arabs) brought it back into Asia.

Turkey is part of Eurasia, between Europe and Asia. But I think Turkey is mostly in Asia.

The Ottoman Empire, prior to its demise in WW I, was notoriously corrupt, badly managed, impoverished, and backward. Some or all of these traits linger in some middle eastern countries which were formerly part of the Ottoman Empire. I should also mention that although the Ottoman Empire was predomin…ant middle eastern, it did extend into Europe - and even today, the nation of Turkey, which was the administrative center of the Ottoman Empire, does extend into Europe, and wishes to join the European Union, although its chances do not look good.

No, actually Turkey is a successful bridge between East and West. It's the country where East meets West. It's the synthesis of East and West. That's why Turkey is neither an Asian country nor an European country.

Turkey is both a part of Asia (97%) and Europe (3%). Turkey is called the Land Where the East Meets West because it is a melting pot of both cultures. The Asian part of Turkey is called Anatolia while the European part of the country is called Thrace.
Anatolia has had a large number of names across time. You may wish to be specific as to what timeframe you are referring to. The last name Turkey had prior to being called Turkey was the Ottoman Empire.
The fact that the word "turkey" refers to both a country (Turkey) and a bird (turkey) in English is completely incidental. Turkey was not named after turkeys or vice versa. Turkey is just the English version of the Turkish name TÃ¼rkiye, literally meaning: Land of the TÃ¼rk people.
Due to a cultural set of mores that was not seen as productive. Also, they were completely behind in many fields of technology, industry, education, production and much else that what was a modern Europe appeared to be excelling at.
