The Trojan Horse

This may look familiar to you. It is the horse used in the movie Troy ( 2004 ) and it is situated along the main promenade and sea front at Canakkale. It will eventually be re housed at Troy itself when the new musuem there is finished but for now it takes pride of place in Canakkale.

The horse was gifted to the city by Brad Pitt and had to be moved from Mexico to Canakkale – all 12 tonnes of it! The horse is not actually built of wood but rather from fibre glass which is held together by bolts, ropes and nails. It looks impressive enough though and seems quite at home here by the sea.
