Hep hayret etmişimdir, Foça gibi bikaç binlik bi kasabanın, çok değil bir iki bin yıl önce Phokaea'yken tarihin akışına yön veren büyük bir İon şehri olmasına; ya da henüz yüzde doksanından fazlası toprak altında olmasına rağmen günışığına çıkan kısmı bile şimdiki Selçuk'tan büyük olan Efes'in terkedilmiş, tarihe karışmış bi şehir olmasına.

acaba o zaman da var mıydı bizim gibi gezinip -internette değil tabi- bu şehir daa güzel o şehir daa güzel, şu bina daa yüksek, falan diyen tipler??

Yes, it actually is!!


''IN PRE-OTTOMAN times, Foca was one of the trading towns along the Drina River, located about thirty-two miles southeast of Sarajevo and about thirty miles southwest of its more famous neighbor, Visegrad, the setting for Nobel Laureate Ivo Andric's The Bridge over the Drina. The Ottomans gave Foca its claim to fame in 1551 when they built the Aladza Mosque (Colored Mosque), which many considered the most beautiful mosque in the former Yugoslavia and one of the architectural jewels of Europe. Surrounded by trees, with its tall dome, triple-arched portico, and slender minaret rising more than a hundred feet to a point, the mosque was as much a town landmark.''




Sadly, this mosque and others have been destroyed during the war. Nor are there any Muslims left.

Maybe Foca in Izmir got its name from Bosnia?

I just checked Foca's name comes from Phokaia which was an old Ionian name.Belongs to B.C. 6. Probably it is converted to Foca by time. Foca got its name from the Seals living around the town. In Turkish also Seal means Fok. Mediterranian Seals still exists in the region.
