The city of Troy, also known as Troya in Turkish, is located in modern-day Turkey. It is situated in the northwestern part of the country, near the town of Hisarlik in the Çanakkale province. The ancient city of Troy is believed to have been located on a hill known as Hisarlik, which has been excavated by archaeologists for over a century.
The site of Troy was first identified in the 19th century by Heinrich Schliemann, a German archaeologist who believed that the city described in Homer’s Iliad was a real place. Schliemann began excavations at the site in 1870 and uncovered several layers of ancient cities, including the city of Troy that was believed to have been destroyed in the Trojan War.
Today, the site of Troy is a popular tourist destination and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can explore the ruins of the ancient city, including the walls of the citadel, the temple of Athena, and the remains of several houses and public buildings.
