Major roads from Europe are:
• E80 enters Turkey at Kapıkule border gate (NW of Edirne, SE of Svilengrad) from Bulgaria
• E87 enters Turkey at Dereköy border gate (north of Kırklareli, south of Tirnovo) from Bulgaria
• E90 enters Turkey at İpsala border gate (west of Keşan, east of Alexandroupolis) from Greece
