Izmir
Turkey

Antique Smyrna, capital of the Aegean region, or today’s Izmir is also known as the Pearl of Aegean.  As the third biggest city and second biggest commercial harbor of Turkey, Izmir is considered by the Turks as the most beautiful and most modern city of the country.

In the year 2000 Izmir celebrated its 5000 years of existence.

The historical city, Smyrna, was actually founded in today’s Bayrakli area (north of modern Izmir center).  Excavations have brought to light three city levels and a 7th century BC Athena temple.

Closer to the city center, you will visit the ancient Agora, the new Archaeology Museum and the “Kadifekale” (a late Byzantine – early Ottoman “Velvet Castle”) which are only some of the most important highlights of the city.

The Poet Homer, the first Christian martyr Polycarpus, the singer Dario Moreno and the former French Prime Minister, E. Balladur, are among famous Smyrniots.

Izmir was also one of the Seven Churches of the Book of Revelation and counts today a quite important Christian and Orthodox community.
