Smyrna Turkey

Smyrna is the ancient name of Izmir, which is not only one of the earliest settlements but also one of the most beautiful cities in the Aegean Sea.
The two historic sites in the city center were founded in the 11th century. Many ancient monuments such as the refined houses, sacred structures and monumental fountains that survived ancient times are now brought to light through excavations in Bayraklı and Kadifekale districts.
