The history of Antalya dates back to early antiquity. The settlement by the Greeks, Romans and Ottomans left its traces in the form of countless historical buildings and archaeological excavation sites. In addition to the old town and the old Roman port of the metropolis, some ancient settlements in the province of Antalya are also worth seeing. The archaeological museum is one of the country's leading cultural institutions and awaits visitors with an extensive collection of historical artefacts and its own exhibition area for children.
Until the fifties of the 20th century Antalya was an insignificant provincial city. Today, the coastal metropolis is the fifth largest city in Turkey.
