Izmir< Smyrna-ancient name- is the very city of Homer, the father of literature!!! The author of Iliad and The Odyssey. The ultra powerful-creative ancient culture that created the western culture, influenced the whole Mediterranean and the whole world!

Izmir-Smyrna needs this to showcase herself to the world once again!

"I have seen the walls and Hanging Gardens of ancient Babylon, the statue of Olympian Zeus, the Colossus of Rhodes, the mighty work of the high Pyramids and the tomb of Mausolus. But when I saw the temple at Ephesus rising to the clouds, all these other wonders were put in the shade"-
Philon of Byzantium, engineer and writer on mechanics, whom lived in the 3rd century BC.

Once upon a time one of the seven wonders of the world!
Temple of Artemis in Ephesus in Izmir-Smyrna province

Some of the patron goddesses of Izmir-Smyrna of thousands of years;

The mother goddess Cybele;




The goddess Nemesis;



The holy goddesses of Smyrna! Me, thy servant. For the name of your city, I invoke thee. May you excel your city and make her an inspiration to humanity once again, as you bestowed your blessings so many times before.

If you'd like to have a cruise of your life time, come to Aegean Sea to Izmir, where the islands of Greece and Turkey are, and thousands of years of magnificent history and superb sights will be waiting for you!

Way too much spam in this thread of useless photographs. Let's stick to updates, news and discussions directly related to the bidding, shall we?

With an early 2011 bid lodgement to the BIE, Izmir Turkey and Ayutthaya Thailand initiated the six-month window for other cities to bid. This window closed on 2 November 2011, at which point 5 cities had lodged their bids with the BIE, with Dubai making a last minute entry. It has been discussed that the BIE will vote on the winning host city in 2013.

Izmir's video did a great job on showing the city and its people. I wish they showed more of the project for the venues, like the São Paulo video.

Yes, but please use another image because with that Cruise all I think is about this ...
