Natural Beauty - Where it All Started

Can you handcuff the rough waves of the Black Sea? Or break apart the thick forests of Northern Anatolia? Or could you dare to making the rugged cliffs facing the sea obey you? 

Don't be deceived by the tranquility of its unexplored beaches and dare not to attempt to conquer them. They can quickly froth against your reckless ambitions. The raw beauty of Northern Anatolia embroiders itself into one's character. 

Samsun, the name of the city is believed to have come from its former Greek name of Amisós, flourishes among all these beauties in the region. Samsun is the starting point of a ten-year journey that starts from the stormy waves and lush forests of the Black Sea region of Northern Anatolia, which is ingrained in the genes of the Northwind brand, and extends to the lively fashion capitals of Paris and Antwerp. Touching the cool waters of the Black Sea with its shores, Samsun as the biggest city in the region, has also magnificent nature with every shade of green and blue. It attracts nature lovers with its forested areas, clean beaches and impressive mountain views.

Samsun's natural wonders are a testament to the diversity and splendor of Türkiye's landscapes. From the rugged cliffs and pristine beaches lining the coastline to the lush greenery of its inland forests, the city offers a kaleidoscope of natural beauty at every turn.The coastline is also dotted with picturesque fishing villages, where visitors can immerse themselves in the local culture and sample freshly caught seafood.

Beyond its natural beauty, Samsun is also home to a rich array of flora and fauna, with numerous nature reserves and protected areas scattered throughout the region. Birdwatchers can spot a variety of species in their natural habitats, while botany enthusiasts will delight in the diverse plant life that flourishes in Samsun's fertile soil. 75% of bird species in Türkiye can be seen in Kızılırmak Delta. In fact, a significant portion of bird species threatened with extinction worldwide can only be seen here. 

However, the most distinctive feature of Samsun is that it is the point where Türkiye's fight for freedom began. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, along with his companions, despite all obstacles, braved the fierce waves of the Black Sea aboard a dilapidated steamship from Istanbul and arrived in Samsun on May 19, 1919. Therefore, the city represents determination and perseverance in the struggle for independence and freedom.

Echoing the untamed spirit of nature, the unyielding resilience, and relentless determination, it encapsulates the very soul of Northwind.

P.S. Like every city in Türkiye, you can be sure that in Samsun, the street cats and dogs will embrace you with love : )
