Zeugma in Turkey
This magnificent ancient city, the name of which means “gate,” was founded in 300 BC on the Seven Hills by Seleucus, one of the generals of Alexander the Great.
 
Located 10 km away from Nizip a district of Gaziantep province, Zeugma is comprised of two ancient cities connected to each other through a bridge adjoining the two cities.
 
Formerly named “Euphrates Selevkaya”, the city became known by the name “Zeugma” after entering the patronage of the Roman Empire.
 
Zeugma was an important trade center of the region located on the historical Silk Road, which used to be the most crucial trade route stretching from Antakya to China in the ancient times.
