Canakkale is a town and seaport in Turkey on the southern (Asiatic) coast of the Dardanelles (or Hellespont). Canakkale is the second province (first one is Istanbul) in Turkey that has lands on two different continents (Europe and Asia). There are ferries to cross to the northern (European) side of the strait. Canakkale is the nearest major town to the site of ancient Troy. The "wooden horse" from the recent movie Troy is exhibited on the seafront.
