Besides don’t forget to visit symbolic Troy Horse which is dedicated to the war and the horse which is given as a gift by Warner Bros after the film Troy. Other ancient city in Çanakkale is Behramkale which is known as Assos. This city was an important education center at that time. Famous students of Pluton; Aristo Thales was invited here and he spent 3 years of his life here by teaching and established a philosophy school. There are also ruins of Athens Temple which accepted city protection duty in Assos Acropolis. You can also see agoras, gymnasiums, theatre and even the bridge mosque and castle that were built by Ottoman Sultan 1.Murat. You can also visit the other ancient city Chryse near to Assos and see Babakale and ruins of Apollon Smintheus Temple. Those cities on the one hand smelling history and on the other hand they are presenting a magnificent beauty with its own view to the visitors. While you are travelling around temples and analyzing Zeus Foothills of Kazdağları (Goose Mountain), you will come across with National Park which is going to fascinate you with its nature. Please don’t forget to bring your camera to immortalize the harmony created by bright green color of the olive groves and aqua blue. Çanakkale is opening its doors for nature-lovers lots of camping and holiday resorts. There are also hotels and rest-houses for the ones who says that only view is not enough. We suggest Kestanbol Hot-Springs for health-conscious people and for the people who can’t give up sea we suggest long and clean Çanakkale coasts. In the mean time you should also visit two other pearl of Bosporus Gökçeada and Bozcaada ( Imbros and Tenedos islands). While you have the opportunity to visit Venice Castle, vineyards and wine cellars in Gökçeada(Imbros island) and taste some wines, you will enjoy the nature where olive groves found intensely in GökCeada(Tenedos island).Those are also not enough to finish your vacation in Canakkale. You should also visit the lovely district and see ceramics in Çan. It is my duty to tell you that you can find 3 other hot-springs one of which is sulfuric. Aynalı Çarşı which has took place in different rumors and folk songs is also a different place.
