Things to do: nature, parks, shopping
Edremit is a district in Balıkesir Province, Turkey, as well as the central city of that district, on the west coast of Turkey, not far from the Greek island Lesbos.It is situated at the tip of the gulf with the same name (Gulf of Edremit), with its town center a few kilometers inland, and is an important center of trade, along with the other towns that are situated on the same gulf (namely Ayvalık, Gömeç, Burhaniye and Havran). It is also one of the largest district centers of Balıkesir Province. The district of Edremit, especially around Kazdağı, is largely covered with forests.HistoryThe name of Edremit corresponds to that of the ancient city of Adramyttion or Adramytteion or, in Latinized form Adramyttium, a city of Asia Minor on the coast of Mysia. It was to this port that the ship belonged on which Paul the Apostle set out from Caesarea Maritima for the first part of his journey to Rome. It conveyed him only to Myra, in Lycia, whence he sailed on an Alexandrian ship for Italy. In classical times, Adramyttium received settlers from Athens and Delos. It later belonged to the Roman province or Asia, whose capital was Ephesus.
