Turkey’s westernmost point, the point connecting the Marmara Sea and the Aegean Sea, has been a battleground for military strategists since ancient times. This is the place where Turkey’s fine pottery is produced. In Byzantine Greek, the city’s name is Danylia. This is also the representative place of higher education in Turkey. It is a great mood for the blue ocean to travel from Europe to Asia by boat. The sun is violent at noon, so you don’t need to wear down.
The Dardanelles, to the north is the Gallipoli Peninsula. During World War I, the famous Gallipoli battle took place here. The Allied Powers led by the British were defeated twice by the Turks and had to retreat. The battle resulted in 500,000 casualties, including 36,000 soldiers from the British Empire, including 8,700 Australians and 2,700 New Zealanders, and 47,000 French expeditionary forces. More than half of Ottoman Turkey’s 500,000 troops were killed and injured, and 86,700 were killed in battle. Today's battlefield has become Gallipoli National Historical Park, and soldiers can no longer hear the fighting and shouting. Only the dense trees whispered about the cruelty of the two wars. The opposite city Canakkale has also become a famous tourist city. The ancient Greek city of Troy is also located on the opposite side of the peninsula. Standing on the ancient ruins of Troy, you can see the World War I monument on the peninsula across the strait.
The Dardanelles is also known as the Turkish Strait. One side of the strait is Asia and the other is Europe. You can take a cruise ship to explore the scenery of the Strait. On a clear day, you can vaguely see that the sea on the east coast is blue and the sea on the west coast is greenish. It is speculated that this is also related to the depth of the ship.
The Dardanelles is a famous strait that separates Asia and Europe. One end of the sea is the Asian continent, and the other end is the European continent. Turkey is such a magical place. It spans the Eurasian continent. Shipping across the strait is very busy, with large freighters and oil tankers coming and going. It is definitely one of the world's shipping routes.
Canakkale to Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, must pass through the Dardanelles. The way to get there is by ferry. The ferry on the Dardanelles is also super large, with cars parked on the first floor and people on the second floor. As the ferry moves forward, looking at the strait, the water is so blue and the seagulls are flying at low altitude. The artistic conception is really beautiful. The water in Dardanelles is really beautiful, and sometimes jellyfish and swimming fish can be seen. Since we took the ferry very early, we also saw the sunrise on the strait. Sometimes it's so romantic!
