Canakkale photos 1998


Turkey facts and history in brief.

The city of Canakkale is a nice quiet and friendly place, on the Asian side of the Dardanelles Strait, when we visited it, but played important roles in the past and the present as a crossing point or defence of the Dardanelles Strait.
A regular ferry connects this city with a number of other cities including Eceabat, on the opposite, European side of the strait.
We had a perfect day to explore the Fortress built by Mehmet II, the 'Conqueror' in the fifteenth century and reinforced later to defend the strait, the Military Naval Museum and the nearby Troy.
