Gaziantep, formerly known as Antep, is a city that combines a rich history stretching back well over 2,000 years with a vibrant present as one of Turkey’s fastest-growing economic centres. A key trading post on what came to be known as the Silk Road, the present-day city dates back to the Hittite era and was an important mercantile centre under a series of empires, including the Akkadians, Assyrians, Urartians, Babylonians, Persians, Macedonians, Parthians, Romans, Byzantines, Sassanids, Seljuks and Ottomans. The city is famed for its covered bazaars, where artisans practice the traditional art of coppersmithing for which Gaziantep is rightly famous. As you stroll the narrow lanes of its bazaars, you will find your strides begin to match rhythmic song of the smiths’ hammers as they beat intricate designs into fine copperware, everything from Turkish coffee pots to ornate trays to vases and even wall clocks. When you are ready for a break, sit down at a café and sample some of the pistachio baklava for which Gaziantep is renowned while you survey the exotic city-scape dominated by the Gaziantep Citadel, built by the Romans, restored in the 6th century AD by the Emperor Justinian and then largely rebuilt by the Seljuk Turks in the 12th and 13th centuries. From there, take a short taxi ride to the Gaziantep Zeugma Mosaic Museum, home to some of the finest Roman mosaics in existence, including the famous “Gypsy Girl” , ”statue of Mars the God of War “ and the “Birth of Venus”.
