About İzmir

“Located in western Turkey on the shores of the Aegean Izmir, the pearl of the Aegean, is the third largest city in Turkey. With its 8500 year history, fertile lands, favorable climate, 629 km coastline, 300 sunny days a year, a sea that offers every shade of blue and the heritage left behind by the 32 civilizations it has been a home to, Izmir is ready to be discovered.

The fact that almost half of its population of 4 million is under the age of 30, it makes Izmir a city full of life. The city hosts tens of thousands of university students, educates scientists, artists, business leaders and academics.”
