İzmir (Ottoman Turkish: إزمير İzmir, Greek: Σμύρνη Smırnē, Armenian: Իզմիր "Izmir", Italian: Smirne, Ladino: Izmir, without the Turkish dotted I) is the third most populous city of Turkey and the country's largest port after İstanbul. It is located in the Gulf of İzmir, by the Aegean Sea. It is the capital of İzmir Province. The city of İzmir is composed of 9 metropolitan districts. These are Balçova, Bornova, Buca, Çiğli, Gaziemir, Güzelbahçe, Karşıyaka, Konak and Narlıdere. Each district, and often also the neighborhoods within, possesses distinct features and a particular temperament (for detailed information, see the articles on these districts). The 2000 population of this urban zone was 2,409,000 and the 2005 estimate is 3,500,000. Izmir is one of the chief seaports of Turkey and is served by several railroads. It is also a commercial and industrial center."
