25 km north of Pergamon the Madra Daği mountains rise to 1344 metres.

Two tributaries of the Bakır Çayı river (the ancient River Kaikos) pass on either side of the Pergamon Acropolis: to the west the Bergama Çayı (the ancient Selinus) which flows through Bergama (see also gallery 1, page 8); and to the east the Kestel Çayı (the ancient Ketios) which was dammed in 1992 below the acropolis to form an artificial U-shaped lake (see gallery 1, pages 25 and 26).
