Love Arriving Late: Ağva
She had been waiting for years to be attracted with patience and excitement. She deserved such attention with all her charm and innocence.
A deep blue sea, a fine sandy beach, two wonderful streams, a flawless nature, clean air, attractive gardens, delicious fish… Here, only 115 km from Istanbul, the pearl of the Black Sea, Yesilçay… Yeşilçay is the name of Ağva’s official name that Turks are familiar with.
“The village between two streams”
Of course, there is a reason why the name Ağva is given to this cute town. Ağva in Latin, “the village established between the two streams” means. These two streams are the Göksu and Yeşilçay creeks, which originate from the Çal Hill of İzmit.
