Samsun Port

Cruise Destinations & Ports

The history of the modernization of Turkey began in Samsun. The founder of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, departed from Istanbul and arrived at Samsun on the SS Bandırma, an Ottoman steamer, starting the Turkish War of Independence on May 19, 1919. For this reason, Samsun holds a special place in the hearts of the Turkish people.

Samsun is also renowned for its beautiful nature. The city’s Atakum Beach is the longest beach on Turkey’s Black Sea coast. Samsun’s lively bars and excellent restaurants await all visitors.
