History of The District
Kucukcekmece was a prime position on the Via Egnatia, an 1120-kilometer 2nd century BC Roman road connecting the east and west of the Empire. Hence throughout history, citizens suffered many attacks from bandits and invading armies.
Fortunately, by the time the Turkish Republic was formed, Kucukcekmece gained a reputation as an ideal city get-away. Families from around Istanbul spent weekends in the area to escape the crowds and the hustle and bustle of city life. The flat landscape also meant that it was prime real estate land and slowly the area grew to become a verified city. These days the population of Kucukcekmece is roughly 770,000 people. This makes buying a property in Küçükçekmece very profitable and ideal.
Excavations have uncovered the Hellenistic City of Bathonian in Lake Kucukcekmece. Experts also strongly suspect that many more ruins lay in the lake and are hopeful for future discoveries. Other discoveries were found in the Yarımburgaz Caves, which revealed the people living there at the time were fishermen and hunters.
Archaeological digs in and around the lake uncovered many precious artifacts including stone tools dating from the Iron Age and Neolithic periods, fragments from Hellenistic storage pots, and many objects from the Roman period. Archaeologists also discovered underground water tunnels and the remains of a lighthouse suggest Kucukcekmece was a port town in early history.
6 kilometers wide and 10 kilometers long, and with a depth of 22 meters, it is a sizeable lake classed as a lagoon and is the principal landmark of the region. Separated from the sea by a small sandbank, and fed by three different streams of water, locals enjoy evening walks by the lake, and many traditional tea shops make a roaring trade during this time. That’s why Antalya Homes offers you to purchase a property in Kucukcekmece for sale within this unparalleled natural and social area.
Across the mouth of the lake Mimar Sinan, the favored architect of the Ottoman Sultans built the historic bridge that is another notable landmark and often a meeting place for locals.
