Therefore, it has a structure that can attract people of all ages. . This large area encompassing the National Park also covers areas where a large number of enemy soldiers are buried. For this reason, the proud memories of the Gallipoli victory are always alive here. Within the boundaries of the Gallipoli Peninsula Historical National Park, there are 35 martyrs belonging to foreigners out of 56 domestic monuments. It is known that around 250 thousand Turkish soldiers took part in this martyrdom.
