Balkan Tours 2018 – Turkey…
The first settlements on the land that Turkey is on are Aiol. Dor and the Ionians were initiated by the societies such as the Thracian and Persians in the Stone Age. The Aleksandros dominated the Hellenistic period and later the Roman and Byzantine periods. As a result of the settlement of the Seljuks in Anatolia in the 11th century, the Turkization movement on the lands began and with the victory following the Battle of Malazgirt in 1071, the Byzantine superiority in Anatolia lost power in favour of the Turks.
