    This library is housed in a former 19th century school, just south of the Tifli Mosque on the town’s pedestrianised shopping street, Carsi Caddesi. It was the bequest of the late Manfred Osman Korfmann (1942-2005) who was the archaeological director at nearby Troy from 1988 to 2003 and contains 6,000 volumes on history, culture, art and archaeology.

    WWI Casualties Monument

    Canakkale is not only name of a city but also the province including the battelefileds and memorials of Gallipoli.
    The eight month-long struggle between the Allies and Turkish forces is known as Gallipoli Campaign in WWI. Serious casualties were given on both sides. I saw a monument in Eceabat in memory of these casualties.

    The town of Eceabat on the peninsula lies opposite Çanakkale and is the busiest point enabling the passage between the continents of Asia and Europe via the Strait.
