Regions of Turkey


Regions of Turkey

The provinces of Turkey are organized into 7 census-defined regions ("bölge"), which were originally defined at the First Geography Congress in 1941. Regions as defined in this context is merely for statistical purposes and do not refer to an administrative division. Each region is listed below, with corresponding provinces within the region. However the official boundaries of the regions and the provinces do not overlap. Provinces, by custom, are accepted to be located in the regions where most of their territory remains.
