Erzurum, which is the second most populous city of the Eastern Anatolia Region, is also known as the Land of Dadaşlar. Erzurum, whose history dates back thousands of years, has always been at the intersection of great empires due to its geographical location. The present city of Erzurum was first established during the time of the Eastern Roman Empire. Later, many powerful empires such as Sassanids, Ilkhanids, Seljuks and Safavids dominated this city. Erzurum, which was conquered by Suleiman the Magnificent in 1534, remained under the rule of the Ottomans until 1916. Erzurum, which was under Russian occupation from 1916 to March 12, 1918, will write its name in Turkish history as one of the places where the fuse of the Turkish War of Independence was ignited. The Turkish War of Independence, on the other hand, became official in these lands. Mustafa Kemal, Kazım Karabekir and Rauf Orbay gathered in Erzurum on 23 July – 7 August 1919 and the process leading to independence started with the decisions taken at the Erzurum Congress.


Narman Fairy Chimneys and Norman Five Lakes
These geological structures in the Narman district of Erzurum can only be seen around Narman. Standing out with its red color and different landforms, the Narman Fairy Chimneys are also known as the “Red Fairy Land”.
