Çanakkale - Troia (Troy) National Park


Location: The park is in the district of Ezine, at the entrance to the Dardanelles.

Troy can be reached from the Canakkale - Izmir highway, as well as the Bursa – Balikesir highway.

Highlights: The park is best known for the ancient city of Troia (Troy), which was immortalised in Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. According to archaeologists, Troy is only one of nine cities which were built on top of each other, the oldest of which dates back to 3000 BC. Its history covers an area beginning from the north side of the Edremit gulf, and reaches the southern shores of the Marmara Sea. To the south is Kazdagi (Ida Mountain), an attractive area to visit.

Facilities: There is no accommodation available in the national park, but the nearby cities of Canakkale and Ezine have many hotels and guest-houses.
