You will see this giant map of Troia with the hearty welcome just after you leave your car or a bus. Troy as a legendary city and centre of the Trojan War attracts a lot of tourists from all over the world. It was one of the main attractions in my rout across Turkey and I was happy to see it with my own eyes.

Today there is a Turkish town called Truva in the vicinity of the archaeological site, but this town has grown up recently to service the tourist trade.
The archaeological site is officially called Troia by the Turkish government and appears as such on many maps.
