It has a population of 136,070 inhabitants1 (2007). Located in the geographical center of the fertile coastal plain of Thrace, its economy is based on the production of cotton, linen, silk, leather, wool, essence and rose water, wax and red dye. It is also an important regional market that caters to many other cities nearby fruit, wine and other agricultural products. Edirne's roots are very old. Already in classical times there was a Thracian settlement under the name of Uskadama, which was abandoned after many wars with the Greeks and Romans. In the year 125 AD, the Roman emperor Hadrian rebuilt giving its name to the city. For its strategic value, the areas near the city of Adrianople have been the scene of no less than fifteen battles throughout history, nine of them after its founding.
