Pearl of the Aegean
The birthplace of Homer, the ancient port city of Izmir boasts a colorful heritage that includes traces of Greek, Armenian, and Jewish cultures. Founded nearly four millennia ago and long known by its Greek name Smyrna, this busy city has served as a major Mediterranean trading center since its earliest days. Today cosmopolitan Izmir remains one of the country's most liberal and worldly urban centers, renowned for its nightlife, culinary scene, and cultural festivals. Nestled against a large bay, the city features a network of broad boulevards flanked by contemporary buildings and upscale shopping malls, interspersed with historical mosques and churches, a blend of modern and traditional architecture.
