About Me: The province of Canakkale, which straddles the Dardanelles strait in northwest Turkey, is a area wealthy in legend and fantasy. According to considered one of these myths, the strait linking the Aegean and Marmara seas was created by the sea god Poseidon, who break up the land apart, permitting the waters to hurry through.

The city of Canakkale on the south financial institution was referred to as Dardanos or Dardania by the Hellens after its legendary founder Dardanos, the son of Zeus and Electra, and his grandson Ilos based the famous city of Troy 30 kilometers to the south.

The Canakkale Strait, as it's identified right now, rivals the Bosphorus Strait in terms of significant events in historical past, which it has witnessed. For instance, the Macedonian king Alexander the Great crossed the strait on his method eastwards in 334 BC. In 1353 AD, Sultan Orhan Gazi crossed within the different direction in the midst of increasing the young Ottoman Empire.

In Ottoman times Canakkale was known as Kale-i Sultaniye or Sultaniye Castle, after the valide sultan (sultan mom). He based the city according to the well-known 17th-century Ottoman writer Evliya Celebi. The fort was constructed during the reign of Sultan Mehmed II, who conquered Istanbul in the mid-fifteenth century. Evliya Celebi also tells us that the dual citadel on the north side of the strait was constructed during the reign of Mehmed IV in the second half of the seventeenth century and referred to as Kale-i Hakaniye or Imperial Castle. Evliya Celebi describes Canakkale as having such fine air and water that its inhabitants were typically of great magnificence, and the men 'as burly as Algerian mariners'. He says that the town had many orchards and gardens and was famous for its grapes, grape juice, wine, pickles grapes, grape molasses, and meatballs. We should add that Canakkale can be famend for its wind, which attracts giant numbers of windsurfers to the Aegean coast of the province all through the summer time months.

Canakkale is inextricably associated with two wars. The first was the legendary Trojan War, which occurred round 1200 BC, and the second the Gallipoli Campaign, which occurred here 3115 years later. The Battle of Conkbayiri and Colonel Mustafa Kemal, as Ataturk was then, come to mind in connection with the latter. The folksong, which begins, 'The Aynali Bazaar in Canakkale / Mother I am off to fight the enemy,' is a reminiscence of those unhappy instances.

The Canakkale Campaign Museum in the fort, the citadel mosque, Canakkale Clock Tower, Yali Han, and Fatih Mosque are the city's principal sights. Traveling southwards out of the town, bear in mind to stop at Intepe. From this level, there's a spectacular view over the strait, the Aegean, and the Gallipoli Peninsula on the other shore. Here historical past and nature are entwined, the imposing Canakkale War Memorial rising from the Cape of Hisarlik on the southern extremity of the peninsula. In autumn, the vista is extremely beautiful, when the azure waters of the strait are framed by the steep wooded shores of inexperienced pines and the blazing reds and yellows of the deciduous trees.

Continuing previous Troy, you come to a signpost indicating the way to the island of Bozcaada and the ancient metropolis of Alexandreia Troas, which was based in 310 BC. Taking this street by way of pine woods and past villages convey you to Geyikli, where automotive ferries make regular trips to the island, a journey of 25 minutes.

The traditional Ayazma Festival in celebration of the grape harvest takes place right here every year between 26 and 29 July. From the north shore of Bozcaada could be seen Turkey's largest island, Gokceada (Imroz), to which there is a daily ferryboat service from Canakkale. South of Alexandria Troas, known to local people as Eski Istanbul Ici, is the Smintheion Sanctuary, whose Temple of Apollo is one of the three most opulent temples in Turkey.

Further south is Turkey's westernmost point, near the village of Babakale on the mouth of the Gulf of Edremit. To journey alongside the gulf, you have to take the principle highway which crosses inland and brings you again to the coast on the historical metropolis of Assos, the place the little town of Behramkale lies on a steep hill, on the prime of which are the luxurious ruins of the Temple of Athena.

From this vantage level, the Aegean stretches to the south and west, to the east is the broad arc of Kadirga Bay, and to the north, a luxurious inexperienced valley. When you look straight down from the temple to the seashore, you can discern the marbles of the sunken harbor shimmering greenish-blue beneath the water.

Kaz Dagi, the traditional Mount Ida, which rises to the north of Edremit, was where the world's first magnificence contest happened according to one of many many myths and legends related to the mountain. Inland between Assos and Canakkale lie the cities of Ezine, Bayramic, and Ayvacik, the place native women from the previously nomadic Yoruk tribes of this region promote kilims.

Other places value visiting within the province are the town of Lapseki on the northwest mouth of the strait, Biga on the Marmara Sea, Can with its coal mines and ceramics manufacturing facility, Yenice simply east of Can based by the Kizil Keceli clan, and Bolayir, the place the tombs of Gazi Suleyman Pasa and the poet Namik Kemal are situated.

On the north shore of the strait are Eceabat, web site of Kilitbahir Castle, and Gelibolu, famend for its sardines and beautiful scenery.
