The Dardanelles Strait

On its way to Istanbul, the Pacific World entered the Dardanelles Strait, which connects the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara. The strait is as long and narrow as a river and is said to be difficult to navigate due to the currents created by the waves of the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. It is crossed by the largest suspension bridge in Turkey, the “Çanakkale 1915 Bridge.”
