To the traveller

Halt, traveller! Where you step on this unknown bank,
Is the land where once an era sank!
Bow on this silent grave and put down your ear,
Heart beats of a nation is what you will hear!
                                        
      Necmettin Halil Onan

   No one crossing the straits of Dardanalles can miss a huge big impression of a soldier on the European side of the channel. The relief, drawn out of stones, is there to remind the unfortunate battle of Gallipoli, where almost 100.000 people lost lives. Turks, Anzacs, British, French, Senegalese and others. The poem is inscribed on the hill next to the soldier figure to remind the passer-by of the brutal and sad confrontation in the World War I. Every year, thousands of people from all over the world, especially the children and the grandchildren of the Anzacs from Australia and the New Zealand come together in the Anzac cove in true peace for the  commemoration of the Gallipoli War of 1915.
  Turizm.Net, as a part of Turkey Anatolia tour, invites you to participate in this special remembrance day.
