Samsun has a rich cultural heritage. Many musicians, scientists and artists were born in that beautiful city. In 1920s Samsun and its region lived a great trouble just like northern greece: population exchange. thousands of innocent immigrants traveled to an unknown future. So you may find their grandchildren and only a few of them in the city and villages. Relations between Turkey and Greece are becoming better day by day. And people's warmth can win against artificial prejudices created by politicians. Greek tourists are not only visitors, in fact they are our old neighbours...
