Historical Places in Turkey

The greatest wealth of Turkey is probably history. The Anatolian peninsula where Turkey is located. was the home of many great civilizations throughout the history of man. Turkey is also the setting for many important religious events and legends.

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).
