Dardanelles was formerly known as Hellespont, it is a narrow strait which falls in the north western region of Turkey. This strait connects the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean Sea. Dardanelles is like the Bosporus, it divides Europe and the mainland of Asia. The strait of Dardanelles acts as an international waterway and along with the Bosporus it forms the connection between the black sea and the Mediterranean Sea. The city of Çanakkale lies just adjacent to the strait of Dardanelles.
