History

The city was founded in the 3rd millennium before Christ. It is a common belief that Izmir is a birthplace to Homer, one of the most significant poets ever. At that time the place was called Smyrna. Since then, the fame of the city and the city itself has been growing as it is beautiful and very attractive for tourists, too.

Monuments

You can hardly find ancient monuments in Izmir as they had been destroyed by earthquake but you can visit an archaeological museum where their remains are on display. One of the main dominating landmarks is Saat Kulesi – Clock Tower which is located right on the quay. It was erected in 1901 in the late ottoman style as a gift donated to the city by sultan Abdulahmed. Another nice example of the ottoman architecture is the ottoman dormitory named Kizlaragasi Han (18th century) . The city is known for mosques built in the 16th and 17th century.
