Edirne

beautiful and mysterious landscape full of tradition

Turkey’s Western Most City
Edirne in Turkey’s Western Province known as Thrace, is the gateway to the Western Borders of Turkey with Bulgaria and Greece.

Founded by the Thracians that migrated from Middle Asia in the ancient times, the city was named, “Pasa Sancagi during the Ottoman era. Edirne grew in importance and served as the capital city for the Ottoman Empires for 92 years before Istanbul. The Conqueror Fatih Sultan Mehmet was born in Edirne.

Edirne tends to have a long cold winter followed by warm summer months. The Meric River runs through the city, and beautiful stone villages abound namely the Beyazit Gazi Mihal, Yildirim, Yalniz Goz, Fatih and Sarachane. To sit by the Meric River and gaze at the lovely stone Tunca Bridge is sheer joy!
