The largest city in Eastern Anatolia, Erzurum was founded around 4900 BC. The region, which includes Erzurum, has been ruled by various tribes and nations throughout history, such as Urartians, Cimmerians, Scythians, Medes, Persians, Parfts, Romans, Sassanids, Arabs, Seljuks, Byzantines, Sassanids, Mongols, Ilkhanids and Sfavids. The Ottomans, who conquered the city and its surroundings, ruled these lands until 1923, when the Republic of Turkey was established. Our city, where approximately 767,000 citizens live, stands out with its winter tourism. Our city, which attaches great importance to local participation, aims to be a part of ELDW and encourage civic participation.
