100th anniversary of the Anzac landings in Gallipoli.
The Province of Canakkale lies on the both sides of Dardanelles which connects the Sea of Marmara to Aegean Sea. Its shores touch both Europe (Gallipoli Peninsula) and Asia
The province has witnessed two very important battles in the history; mythological Trojan Warand Battle of Canakkale during the World War 1
The Gallipoli campaign of 1915 was one of the most controversial campaigns of the First World War.
One hundred years later, the campaign still generates mythology and debate over the strategy and planning, the real or illusory opportunities for success, and the causes of failure. The campaign involved military and naval forces from many nations around the world, and the lingering memory of Gallipoli continues to play a central role in the national narratives of Australia, New Zealand, and Turkey.
