Afyonkarahisar (Turkish for the black opium castle) is a city in western Turkey, also known simply as Afyon (i.e. opium) or as Karahisar-i Sahip. Older spellings include Afium-Kara-hissar and Afyon Karahisar. It is the capital of Afyon province. It is located 250 km south-west of Ankara along the Akar River at an elevation of 1 034 meters. It has a population of 128 516 and is an important railroad junction between Izmir, Konya, Ankara and Istanbul. The region is traditionally the main producer of opium in Turkey, thereby its name. Afyon was known as Acroënus until the reign of the Byzantine emperor Leo III who after his victory over Arab besiegers in 740 renamed it Nicopolis (Greek for the Victory City). The Seljuk Turks changed its name to Kara Hissar (the black castle) after the ancient fortress situated upon a volcanic rock 201 meters above the town. It was conquered by the Ottoman Sultan Beyazid I in 1392 but was lost after the invasion of Timur Lenk in 1402. It was recaptured in 1428 or 1429. During the Turkish War of Independence in the early 1920s it was occupied by Greek forces. After 1923 it became a part of the Republic of Turkey. Apart from the partly ruined fortress which has given the city its name, famous buildings includes the Ulu Camii (Great Mosque) and the Altigöz Bridge, both built by the Seljuks in the 13th century. It is the seat of an Armenian bishop.

Approximetely 28-30% of the land consists of plains, 25% is high plateu and tableland, and 47% is mountainous. Mount Honaz is the highest mountain in the province, and indeed in Western Anatolia with an elevation of 2571 meters. Babadag (Father Mountain) in the Mentes mountain range has a height of 2308 meters. The biggest lake in Denizli is Acigol (Bitter Lake). Only a part of the lake is within the borders of Denizli. Industrial salts (sodium sulfate) are extracted from this lake which is competely sterile. There is a thermal spring at the west side of Sarayköy that is shares the same source as the Great Menderes River. This hot spring contains bicarbonates and sulfates. There is a hot spring in Kizildere which reaches 200˚C. A geothermal steam source was first found in the region in 1965 during drilling work. Today there is a power plant producing electrical energy from geothermal steam energy as well as a dry ice (compressed Carbon dioxide) factory, greenhouses and hot springs. Only 11% of the geothermal energy source is used to produce electricity and 89% of it, which flows into the Great Menderes, is 150˚C at source (it is contains energy equal to 35,000 – 40,000 tonnes of fuel oil). The cock of Denizli is a breed of cock identified with the province of Denizli, being a focus of interest with its appearance and colour, along with its prolonged and melodious crows.

Izmir is a province of Turkey in the western Anatolia on the Aegean coast. On the west it is surrounded by Aegean sea, and it encloses the Izmir Gulf (in Turkish İzmir Körfezi). Its area is 11.811 square kms. The area was first settled by Ionian Greeks in about the 11th century BC who established the city of Smyrna now Izmir city. It was later conquered by the Persians, retaken by the Greeks, before being subsumed into the Roman Empire. After the split of the Roman Empire, the area became part of the Byzantine Empire until conquered by the Ottoman Turks in the 14th century . Following the First World War the province was ceded to Greece , but was retaken by the forces of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in the Turkish War Of Independence . A highly controversial point involved massive genocide of Turkish civillians by Greek Soldiers, and of Greek civillians by Turkish soldiers. As a result of the Treaty of Lausanne all non-Turkish and non-Muslim inhabitants of the province had to leave, and Izmir province was incorporated into the modern republic of Turkey.
