Dardanelles (Hellespont) Swim 2024
Important sites and historical monuments, great food, warm and generous people, emotionally moving visit to Gallipoli, swim from Europe to Asia.
The legend of Hero & Leander inspired lord Byron to swim the Hellespont (Dardanelles) in 1810. To commemorate this crossing he wrote a poem (for more information about the legend and Byron’s poem see attachment).
