Turkey is one of the most popular places for rest and vocations for Russians. After the rest in the Turkey south coast resorts, Russians see Turkey as a country with tourist-oriented infrastructure only. Considering that all sides of life in the resorts significantly differ from life in the other Turkey, the Russians judgment of Turkey is totally wrong. Moreover, we (Russians) see Turkey as a different culture and country and we can't see from the first glance any identical areas where Russia and Turkey are identical. But once you leave the touristic areas and begin to watch, communicate with people and even live in real Turkey, you find that the lifes in Turkey and Russia have much more in common that we (Russians) can imagine.
