The city has many remains from the Seljuk era. There is some guesswork as to where the city's name came from. Some say that the Ponotosian king's wife wanted to make a gesture for the Roman king Sebaste. Another tradition says that the name was due to the huge plane trees in the middle of the city, which were planted over a water source and had the name Sipas, which translated means three eyes. In the east of Siva there are some areas with many lakes. The city was built during the Turkish Wars of Liberation. The city's sources of income are mainly from agriculture and trade. Besides, Sivas is also very famous for the Kangal dog. The city's culture and history are also reasons to buy a Lyon Sivas plane ticket.
