ABSTRACT
Pompeiopolis ancient city is located in town of Taşköprü, in the province of Kastamonu (Turkey). It was constructed 64 B.C. by the roman commander Pompeius on Zimbilli Hill. Like the ancient city of Ephesus, also Pompeiopolis was established by the Romans. The biggest difference between those two cities is, that Pompeiopolis was established as a brand new city. The revealed monuments of Pompeiopolis ancient city should make the Black Sea a well known place in the world. With a good promotion of the ancient city and correct investments for touristic visitors, Pompeiopolis will be the highlight of the Black Sea region (like: Ephesus or Zeugma) in a short time and will take a good place for international tourism.
