  • It is hard to believe that Homer has described the real events in "The Odyssey" and "The Iliad", which became the beginning of world literature. But when the archaeologist Schliemann has discovered his dream, Troy, his doubts disappeared. That very Troy, whose walls were stormed by Achilles and where the Greeks entered in a wooden horse, really existed! Today this mysterious city strikes our imagination with its age, beauty and history... From the powerful and thick walls of Troy one can see the field on which the triumphant Achilles dragged the body of Hector... Even Alexander of Macedon, who began his conquest of Asia with sacrifice in Troy, admired this place. You will sit down at a marble table, where the greatest military leader of the world sat, and touch the walls, stormed by the adventurous Odysseus. Here, in Troy, you are sure that Homer was, in fact, the chronicler of the war, and not just a dreamer... On the ruins of Troy you will see how people lived there three thousand years ago. You will travel back in time to visit the city of ancient Hellas, which was the target of many generations of Greeks. The Roman civilization began from Troy, as fugitives from the fallen city have founded Rome. In Troy the ancient Greece appeared, when Doric and Mycenaean cultures mixed... Well, one more "bonus" of visiting the city of Troy - from here you can see the narrowest place between Asia and Europe - the Strait of Canakkale (Dardanelles), crossed by the famous English poet George Byron.
