Troy (Truva), Canakkale

#Battlefield, #Ruin, #Must See
Gaze across the plains of Troy (Truva), where Odysseus once left the proverbial wooden horse in one of the most cunning war hoaxes in history. This World Heritage Site was the center of ancient civilizations from the early Bronze Age until Roman times. Driven by his childhood obsession with Homer's epic, German businessman Heinrich Schliemann excavated the remains of nine historical civilizations in the 1870s. Walk along the remnants of rough ancient walls and across a paved chariot ramp. With your imagination and the help of a guide you can picture how the famed city from The Iliad appeared. The layer of Roman Ilium is best-preserved with its bouleuterion (the city council) and a small theater. Kids will enjoy examining the mock Trojan horse in front of the entrance. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Canakkale holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Troy (Truva) and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Of course we must put right, because the historical remains are not easily readable, but if you free your imagination and the collective memory the Homeric heroes are there to be admired.

  • If one travels through this area may not pass through Troy, is the birthplace of the civilizations and the classics such as the Iliad and the Odeisa, but is actually so so damaged and destroyed, that is not worth. It is very difficult to appreciate something. It is almost to experts.

  • Sadly Troy was the least impressive of all the ancient cities we visited. It’s great to see it and relive the store of Troy but the ruins just aren’t as impressive as other ancient cities like Asklepi...  more »

  • Troy is a fantastic historical site.But German arkeolojist (This is animal not arkeolejist) destored the civizalialions.9 civizalialions we can see most importent one iş 6.troy please go and visit with a offical guide..
  • My back is in the picture for proof that I have been there. In grade school I used to read about Troy and now, to be standing next to this replica is amazing.
  • A historic place that brings out the grandeurs of the place. The role played by the various invaders in shaping this place etc. The Trojan horse is awesome inspiring.
  • This place is real, and I could feel it's life as I walked through it. A great example of civilisations past and how time surpasses all. The tacky horse out the front was a bit ordinary though. The horse from the movie in town was much more impressive.
  • Best ancient city ruins i ever visited.. lots of history and culture... trojan horse at the end of the trip was so majestic... beautiful... u can walk up the stairs into the wooden horse... all in all a memorable experience
