Its capital city is Ankara and it shares borders with Greece, Bulgaria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, also some countries in the Middle East like Syria, Iraq, and Iran.[1]

History

In the mid-to-late 1990s, owls from Turkey were kept in quarantine, presumably to avoid the spread of a disease. This fact made Daily Prophet headlines.[2]

While the country's National Quidditch team wasn't known to have qualified for the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, at the finals, a Turkish flag, presumably showcasing the support from the country, was seen during the chaos caused by the reappearance of the Dark Mark.[3]

Magical games and sports

The Turkish National Quidditch team played for this country. It lost to England during the 1980s.[4]
