FLOWER DELIVERY TO ADANA
Adana is a charming fishing city nestled in the centre of the Cukurova Plain, in Anatolia, atop the country’s most fertile soil, 30km inland from the Mediterranean and bestriding the Seyhan River. The city went by many names in Hellenistic times, including Antiochia in Cilicia and Antiochia ad Sarum, Coa (as it appears in the Bible), Edene and Quwe. Still, its name is believed to have originated from the legend of Uranus’ sons, Adanus and Sarus, who were said to have built a city called Adana by the Seyhan River, or alternatively, from Adad, the Hittite Thunder God.
Alexander the Great had once conquered the territory, as did Pompey the Great, who turned it into a pirate prison. Subsequently, it fell under the control of the Ottoman Empire, but a rebellion prompted by English, French and Russian involvement turned it into a province in its own right. Adana is a city bursting with culture. Every year, the locals gather on the Stone Bridge for the ‘Orange Blossom Carnival’ to celebrate bio-diversity and cultural heritage, and to encourage local artists to perform.
