Izmir is located in the Aegean province, which, of all the seven geographical regions of Turkey, enjoys the finest climate. In population it is the third city in Turkey. It is located in an area whose magnificent history has made it a tourist centre. It lies at the centre of the most important land, air and sea communication network in the ancient Aegean region. THE LEGENDARY ORIGIN OF ITS NAME The wife of Cinyras, King of Cyprus, foolishly claimed that her daughter, Smyrna, was more beautiful than Aphrodite herself. This so enraged the goddess that she made Smyrna fall in love with her own father and one night Smyrna's nurse having made the king drunk, she climbed into his bed. When he finally awoke from his drunken slumber, the king drew his sword and drove his daughter from the palace, pursuing her into the country side. Just as he was about to overtake her and kill her with his sword, Aphrodite took pity on the girl and turned her into a myrrh tree.
According to famous ancient travelers such as Aristides, Strabo, Pliny and Pausanias, Izmir was founded around 1450 B.C. by TANTALUS, King of Manisa (Spilos) to the north-east of the present-day city. There is also a legend to the effect that it was founded by the Amazons. The one certain thing is that Izmir is not a Greek word and would appear to be derived from an autochthonous language. The excavations carried out in 1948 by the British Archaeological Institute of Athens and, after 1960, by the Turkish Historical Association under Prof. Ekrem Akurgal have shown that the first settlement, known as Bayraklı, can be dated as far back as the Bronze Age (3500- 1000 B.C.) At the beginning of the 20th century Izmir was a centre of commerce and entertainment rivaling Istanbul and Salonica in the hierarchy of Ottoman cities and famous for its raisins and seedless grapes, its almonds, its horsedrawn phaetons, its spring festival, its "gold drop'' Eau de Cologne and nargiles or water-pipes. The population of 200,000 at the turn of the century has now grown to 3 million. All types of cottons and textiles, together with agricultural produce such as tobacco, grapes, figs, olives and olive oil are exported from Izmir to all four corners of the world. Today the city retains its importance as the largest export harbour in Turkey.Istanbul

Izmir International fair, the first of Republic of Turkey supported by exhibitions and cultural events, takes place in Kulturpark, in the heart of the city since 79 years every SeptemberThe expo area serves for various commercial exhibitions trough out the year, most famous ones Marble Turkey, Travel Turkey, Wedding Turkey… Izmir has a very old sportive background and leaded the foundamentals in development of athletism,soccer and basketball.

Sea sports is another big attraction ;yachting,fishing and wind surfing are top trends in Çe ş me, Foca, Urla, Teos, Alacati resorts. Izmir is connected by domestic and international flights through Adnan Menderes Airport.There are a modern rapid transit railway line running from the southwest to the northeast and motorway circling the city.
Despite its advantegous location and its heritage,Izmir has suffered until recently,as one author puts it,from sketchy understanding in the eyes of outsiders. When the Ottoman took over Izmir in the 15th century they did not inherit compelling historical memories,unlikethe two other keys of the trade network,namely Istanbul and Aleppo. Its emergence as a major international port as of the 17th century was largely a result of the attraction it exercised over foreigners,and the citys European orientation. Very different people found Izmir attractive over the ages and the city has always been governed by fresh inspirations,including for the very location of its center,and is quick to adopt novelties and projects. Izmir is frequently pronounced as the window of Anatolia to western world.
