Ethnic Culture

     Basically all settlements of Modern Turkey have been initially inhabitat since ancient historical eras. Assos presents one of the best examples of intermingling of historical and modern settlements.

     Assos is the first entrance to Dardanells and Marmara sea and then Bosphorus from south to west ,that is geopolitically important for Anatolia. From the Ancient Era up to Ottoman period Assos had always been one of the most importat colonies of civilizations like Lydian Kingdom, Persian and Helenistic Empires, Pergamenon Kingdom, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires .

     Aristotle who was one of the greatest philosophers of the world, worked for three years as the head of philosophy school of Assos.

     Today, we see many historical ruins in Assos and the temple of Assos remain up today is the first remainder of Dorion civilization in Turkey. Unfortunatelly, the monuments of the temple now exist in the museums of Boston, Paris, and Istanbul, but not in Assos itself. Assos offers us a unique synthesis of history and geography depending on the scenic beauty and ethnic culture.

     Consequently, our choice fell on Assos because the closest ancient settlement out of Istanbul is Assos and that was where we could visit and do research as frequently as we wanted rather then any other place in Turkey.
