The legendary city of Troy, which is now placed in northwestern Turkey in the province of Çanakkale, takes its fame from Homer’s famous epic poem, The Iliad. According to the Iliad, this is where legendary Trojan Wars took place possibly in the 12th century BC. We learn from the legend that Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, saying that it is a ”peace offering” gift but used it as a a trick to win the war and gain access to the city of Troy by filling the horse with the Greek forces. In present day, Troy is a wildly known touristic attraction of Turkey with its unique archelogical and ancient site full of interesting city ruins and is preserved by UNESCO. The Legendary City of Trojan Wars was filmed in the modern times in 2004 in which Brad Pitt played the leading role. This event made Troy even more popular.
