This photograph was taken in Izmir, in Turkey. This beautiful city, called historically Smyrna (that is its former Greek name), is an ancient place: its history goes back to 3000 B.C, which makes it one of the oldest settlements of the Mediterranean basin.

Izmir, with four million people, is the third most populous city of Turkey and the country's second largest port city after Istanbul. It is located on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, right in front of Greece.
