Adrianople

city, extreme western Turkey. It lies at the junction of the Tunca and Maritsa (Turkish: Meric) rivers near the borders of Greece and Bulgaria. The largest and oldest part of the town occupies a meander of the Tunca around the ruins of an ancient citadel. Edirne's site and turbulent history were determined by its strategic position on the main route from Asia Minor to the Balkans.
