Located at the Kaaragac train station (which is not a University) this monument commemorates the Lausanne treaty by which the Turkish Republic has been recognized by the West. This shows the historic and modern importance of this monument.

Architecturally, artistically nicely done, meaningful monument. I loved it. If you know the history, it has a great meaning for Turks to become an independent republic at Lausanne, Switzerland. It also describes the young Turkish Republic and Turkey. Only thing that the kids were thinking it as playground, parents were not much sensitive about it.

This monument is dedicated to The Treaty of Lausanne, and it's located next to the train station of Karaagac.

The Treaty of Lausanne is easily the most important treaty signed in the history of the modern Turkish Republic. After the War of Independence, the Treaty of Sevres was annulled and the current boundaries of Turkey were redrawn. This monument is dedicated to this treaty and was opened in the Karaagac district of Edirne in 1998. As significant as the treaty is to the country, we found the monument dull and visually uninteresting not to mention the fact that it is quite a walk from the city centre. After exploring the Meric Bridge, you can walk up to the monument; it's about 2 km and an easy stroll unless you enter the camping area which will mean you'll have to walk through the forest and then walk in a dusty road to get back on track. The surrounding area of the monument is lined with cafes and restaurants, which seem nice, but the monument itself should only be visited if you have plenty of time. I'd recommend exploring the city, the mosques, the churches, the museums, and the Alipasa Bazaar first.

A modern monument, with a strong symbolic meaning. Treaty of Lausanne has set the boundaries of modern Turkey, and the major western powers recognized newly founded Turkish Republic in 1923.
