Crimean Tatars in Turkey refers to citizens and denizens of Turkey who are, or descend from, the Tatars of Crimea. They are Cultural Muslim.[citation needed] The boys are circumcised between 0-1 year.[citation needed] Marriages within the family are very seldom.[citation needed]


Before the 20th century, Crimean Tatars had immigrated from Crimea to Turkey in three waves: First, after the Russian annexation of Crimea in 1783; second, after the Crimean War of 1853-56; third, after the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–78.[1]
