Gallipoli Peninsula

  • Anzac Cove, Gelibolu, 17500

The World War I battle on the turquoise coastline of Turkey’s Gallipoli Peninsula was symbolic for Turks, Australians, and New Zealanders, many of whom trace their national identity to its tragic outcome. Every year on Anzac Day, Australians and New Zealanders flock to the Dardanelles to pay respects to their thousands of fallen countrymen.
