The small port of Canakkale guards the entire straits of the Dardanelles and therefore it has a major strategic importance for the Turks. Many tourists come to Canakkale to visit the World War I-era Gallipoli Battlefields but also the site of ancient Troy located nearby. The `wooden horse` from the 2004 movie Troy is exhibited on the seafront. Canakkale is located less than ten miles away from the Greek island of Lesbos, making it a great place to start an island-hopper journey.
