Ayvalık is connected to Balikesir, 85 km away from Behramkale, Greek settlement of Ottoman period. The region abandoned by Greeks was able to preserve its historical structure for population exchange during the Republic period. Narrow, curved streets, oriel houses and mansions, monasteries and churches left from Greeks cherish a history. It also meets the expectations for sea tourism with its beaches and clean sea allowing diving besides the rich texture.
