      1. Day Izmir

      August 7, 2022 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

      Izmir is a city of millions and at least 4.2 million people live in the city on the Aegean Sea.

      The city is known for its Mediterranean flair and liberal attitude towards life.

      Izmir was called Smyrna in ancient times and is not far from Ephesus (Turkish: Efes), Pamukkale and Pergamon (Turkish: Bergema). Izmir was built by the Greeks, taken over by the Romans, rebuilt by Alexander the Great until it fell under Ottoman rule in the 15th century.

      On our tour through Turkey, we really wanted to stop here to get to know the country and its people.

      To the details. At Izmir airport we took the train to Halil station, then the metro M1 in the direction of Fahrettin Altay to Hatay station, which is close to our accommodation.

      After resting for a few hours, we decided to go to the Alsancak restaurant and bar district and actually just eat something. We came across a restaurant called Inadina Mehane, which is known for good food, raki and live music. It was a lively evening with people partying and drinking like there was no tomorrow.
