At present it is the centre of the tobacco industry of Turkey, the modern city with population of 330000 people, the usual mesh plan and seeming never-ending, stretched on 30 km from the West on the East suburbs.

Because of own strategic site it сиграл an important role in the history of Turkey quite often changed owners: it grasped pontiysky reign, Romans, the Byzantines, different tribes of Turks. Last time the city has suffered in 1425 when the genoeses who have based here a rich trading colony, have preferred to burn it, заместо that to give in hands of Ottomans. With the invention of steel roads it became easier to take out from here to Ankara and tobacco products are farther, and by 1910 Samsun became the prospering city with population in 40 000 people on May 19, 1919 there has arrived from Istanbul Ataturk. Zamesto of that that as it was ordered his command to disarm terrorising local Greeks of Turkish fighters, Ataturk has started to form solid army of the state resistance from local inhabitants of Turkey. It has increased prestige of the small town as places where War for independence has begun.
