Gaziantep’in İngilizce Tanıtımı
GAZİANTEP, is the largest city of southern Turkey and the capital of Gaziantep province. It was formerly called Aintab. Situated in the fertile, hilly plain between the Amanos Mountains and the Euphrates River and lying athwart the natural caravan route to the east, the site has had civilized settlement since Hittite times.
Its proximity to the Syrian border, however, had always kept it in the unstable position of a frontier city, without continuity of government. Even after its conquest by the Ottomans in 1516, Aintab continued to be vulnerable to rebels and bandits. Its name was officially changed to Gaziantep (“Heroic Aintab”) in 1921 because of its resistance to the French occupation of 1920-1921.
Gaziantep is now quite modern in aspect, with only a few reminders of antiquity. Served by good transport, the city is important chiefly as a distribution center for the agricultural products of the province, especially pistachio nuts and fine grapes.
