Lol... this is funny though, you are basically asking if there is any university with free tuition for international students... well the answer is; "No there isn't"
You may get a scholarship percentage in some universities in Turkey on the basis of academic merit, which is highly competitive just like most universities in Europe etc but an all out tuition waiver is unheard of.

Turkey is an amazing country, I was lucky to visit it twice in my life. Turkish culture and history are very rich, original and picturesque. My friends and I used to rent a car to visit such wonderful places in Turkey: Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Antalya. Here's a useful list of car rental services by the way https://travelsites.com/car-rental/ .
