The ark of Noah landed on Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey, and Saint Nicolai, Santa Clause, lived in southern Turkey around Antalya. First money was used by Lydians where Turkey is now. Hattis, Asurians, Baburs are among the countless civilizations that rose and fell in Anatolia. Greeks, Romans, Byzantians, Seljuk Turks, Ottomans reigned over Anatolia at different points in history. Epic battles were fought on these lands, from the thousands of years old battle of Troy and the early 20th century`s fierce battle of Gallipoli near Dardanelles (Canakkale).
