Canakkale

Turkish city Canakkale owes its name to the word canak, which stands for a "pot." The ancient traditions of pottery are still preserved here, and products made by local craftsmen are famous far beyond the country. The city is located in the northwestern part of Turkey, on the bank of the Strait of Dardanelles. There are many shops selling potters' creations in Canakkale, and there are a lot of cozy cafes and restaurants on the city's seafront. Tourists visit the Cimenlik Castle of the XV century, the Naval and Archaeological Museum, Kilitbahir Castle, which played an important role during the Dardanelles Operation during the First World War. An exact copy of the Trojan Horse, made for the film "Troy," is installed in the park. You can also take a boat trip from here to the nearby islands.
