Twin towns — Sister cities
Uçmakdere is a populated place in Tekirdağ.It is 625 metres height and it has great views. It also has a paragliding possibility between end of May and beginning of September.
“The March of Independence” was written by the poet Mehmet Akif Ersoy in 1921. It was composed by Zeki Üngör in 1930 and it has been sung this musical accompaniment ever since
Tekirdağ is situated on the northern coast of the Sea of Marmara, 135 kilometres (84 miles) west of Istanbul. Tekirdağ is enclosed by a mountain which gives its name to the city, Tekir Dağı (ancient Combos), a spur about 2000 ft. that rises into the hilly plateau to the north.
Tekirdağ was called Bisanthe or Bysanthe (Greek: Βισάνθη/Βυσάνθη), and also Rhaedestus (Ῥαίδεστος) in classical antiquity. The latter name was used till the Byzantine era, transformed to Rodosçuk after it fell to the Ottomans in the 14th century (in western languages usually rendered as Rodosto). After the 18th century it was called Tekfurdağı, based on the Turkish word tekfur, meaning "Byzantine feudal lord" – though this etymology has been challenged
The history of the city of Tekirdağ dates back to around 4000 BC. The ancient Greek city of Rodosto is said to have been founded by Samians. In Xenophon’s Anabasis it is mentioned to be a part of the kingdom of the Thracian prince Seuthes. It is also mentioned as Bisanthe by Herodotus (VII, 137).
In the Ottoman period the city was successively a part of the vilayet (province) of Rumelia, Kaptanpaşa (centered at Gelibolu), Silistre and Edirne.
In 1905, the city had a population of about 35,000; of whom half were Greeks who were exchanged with Muslims living in Greece under the 1923 agreement for Exchange of Greek Orthodox and Muslim Populations between the two countries.

Tekirdag is famous for its Kofte / Meatball dish.The recipe is a mystery. It is not widely known, because nobody in Tekirdağ would make Tekirdağ meatballs at home; you go out to one of the several meatball restaurants in the city center for meatballs.
Tekirdağ, my hometown, is renown for its raki (Turkish brandy made from grapes). Tekirdağ raki is famous because although it's made from raisins everywhere else, in Tekirdağ rakı is made from fresh grapes.
