I was born in 1969 in izmit, and 37 years i lived here. I never heard anyone called as "izmid".. --Onder K. 02:23, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
- I actually meant to revert the part where you described İzmit as a "province". I'm pretty sure it's a city. Khoikhoi 02:37, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
The city is not also known as Kocaeli. Kocaeli is the province name, Izmit is its central town (or city)(Probably the exact translation is "Central Town" rather then city of the "Province.) Izmit and Kocaeli are totally different terms. In Turkey many central towns (cities) of the provinces' names and their central towns'(cities) names are same. For example Ankara province, its central town also called Ankara city. Manisa province, its central town called Manisa city etc. But 4 provinces' central towns have called different names. They are Kocaeli (Izmit), Sakarya (Adapazari), Mersin (Icel), Hatay (Antakya). Actually 3. Icel is changed into Mersin in 2002 by the goverment. So only 3 provinces left with different central towns (cities).

By the act of 5216 in 2004, Metropolitan center of Kocaeli encompass whole of the province. Between 1993 and 2004, however, only some districts ( 3 ? ) were the parts of the municipality. Which districts had been included in the municipality of metropolitan center before 2004 ? Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 09:22, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
