Mersin-The City of Mediterranean

Mersin-The City of Mediterranean
Mersin, the rising star of world tourism, is set on a long coastline at the eastern end of Mediterranean and ranks as the area least affected by pollution along this sea. Mersin is a city with long beaches, enchanting inlets and and the Taurus Mountains rising just behind it.
In his extensive study titled, “The Mediterranean”, Fernand Braudel, historian and expert on the Mediterranean, says
“What is the Mediterranean? A thousand and one things all at once. Not one landscape, but countless landscapes. Not just one sea, but many seas one after the other. Not just one civilisation, but many civilisations; one on top of the other.”
The plains of this sun-kissed city are resplendent with some of the best lemon and orange groves of Turkey and its countless vineyards curl up into the low foothills of the mountains. For four thousand years the local populations of this area have been migrating throughout the Mediterranean area, and this adventure continues to live on even today as the Yoruk nomads and their herds hold tightly to their tradition of migrating between the foothills of the Taurus Mountains.
For most of the year, when the tourists lying on the sand under the baking Mediterranean sun happen to look up, they see snow-capped summits of the Taurus Mountains. In between them there are the year rounded colours produced from the assorted vegetable gardens and orchards, followed by the pine forests and meadows; a vast landscape extending from the blue sea to the while capped mountains.
Mersin is a provincial capital and one of the livelier cities of Turkey. The slow pace of daily life, typical to the Mediterranean, suddenly gets livelier once you reach Mersin. Market places and shopping districts are lively and bustling at all times of the day.
Mersin is a fast-growing city that has managed to allow its industry, agriculture and tourism to co-exsist . It is also a port, and the agricultural and industrial products from the fertile Cukurova plain are exported from Mersin. The port is also Turkey’s entry port for agricultural and industrial imports.
