Welcome to Güzelyurt


Known as Karballa (Gelveri) in Ottoman times, up until the population exchanges of 1924 the town was inhabited by 1000 Ottoman Greek families and 50 Turkish Muslim families. Afterwards the Greeks of Gelveri went to Nea Karvali in Greece, while Turkish families from Kozan and Kastoria in Greece moved here. The relationship between the two countries is now celebrated in an annual Turks & Greeks Friendship Festival in July.
