Izmir has a very long and rich history, all of which is punctuated by a constant cycle of destruction and rebuilding. The area on which present-day Izmir is situated has been settled and inhabited from as far back as 3000 BC when the Trojans founded a city here. The city then was conquered and destroyed by a series of other civilizations and earthquakes till it reached the modern look of a developed and rather busy commercial center with broad boulevards and old mosques and churches dotted through modern shopping centers and glass-fronted buildings.
Unfortunately in the 1920s the city suffered through a major fire which destroyed about seventy percent of the city and as such Izmir doesn’t feature a lot of historical sights, not as many as it could’ve for sure especially when you consider its age.
The city center is characterized by featuring the Konak Square which has a famous clock tower that is one of city’s unique symbols having been built in 1901. also around the square you will find the Konak Yali Mosque and the Kemerlati Bazaar.
Despite the relative lack of historical sights rest assured that your trip to Izmir will not be a boring one, especially if you employ our Izmir car hire services with the help of which you will be able to visit and see as many of the remaining sights as possible as well as its surroundings.
