En la costa oriental del Mar Egeo, cuyas aguas han bañado durante siglos dos culturas: la occidental y la oriental, la helénica y la otomana, se levanta con casi tres milenios de historia sobre sus espaldas la ciudad de Esmirna (en turco Izmir), un lugar completamente diferente del resto de Turquía. En palabras de Víctor Hugo, Esmirna es una princesa oriental, bella y enigmática.
En el paseo marítimo encontramos infinidad de restaurantes con comida turca, griega e internacional. Podemos observar la costa de Anatolia y disfrutar de una maravillosa puesta de sol tomando un café o un té en cualquier terraza. El ambiente aquí es totalmente occidental y las mujeres trabajan y viven sin ningún tipo de censura o inhibición a pesar de estar en un país de mayoría musulmana. Esmirna es distinta: abierta, alegre y tolerante. La marcha nocturna está en la calle Gazi Kadinlar Caddesi, llena de bares de copas y discotecas.
Es el segundo puerto de la península turca (detrás de Estambul). Donde se realizan las principales exportaciones de Turquía a otros puertos del Mediterráneo.
Tiene una industria dedicada especialmente a la transformación de la seda y el algodón.
Su producto más famoso son las alfombras.
-------------------------------------
On the east coast of the Aegean Sea, whose waters have bathed for centuries, two cultures: Western and Eastern, Hellenic and Ottoman, rises almost three millennia of history on their backs the city of Smyrna (Izmir in Turkish) a completely different place from the rest of Turkey. In the words of Victor Hugo, Smyrna is an Oriental princess, beautiful and enigmatic.
On the waterfront are many restaurants Turkish, Greek and international. We can see the coast of Anatolia and enjoy a wonderful sunset over coffee or tea at any terrace. The atmosphere here is totally western and women work and live without any censorship or inhibition despite being in a Muslim majority country. Smyrna is different: open, cheerful and tolerant. The nightlife is Kadinlar Caddesi Gazi street full of bars and nightclubs.
It is the second port of the Turkish peninsula (after Istanbul). Where are the main exports from Turkey to other Mediterranean ports.
It has an industry devoted specifically to the transformation of silk and cotton.
Its most famous product is the carpet.
