Gallipoli Battlefield, Pazarlı Köyü, Galípoli, Çanakkale Province, Turkey
The Gallipoli Peninsula suffered a great deal during the World War I, having a casualty record of 100,000 deaths and 400,000 wounded over a span of nine months. The Gallipoli Battlefields extend 35 kilometers from the tip of the peninsula, 35 kilometers of blood, sweat and toil.
The battlefields now serve as a national park with bronze and marble monuments that serve as a reminder of one of Turkey’s darkest ages. If you’re on the adventurous side, you may want to hike up to the tip; the hike is exhilarating and the view is amazing, but if you’d rather save on time, you may have a van take you to the top.
