A Turkish town on two islands worth visiting

Amasra is a beautiful blend of Ottoman and Byzantine architecture, so you’ll enjoy strolling the small, winding streets and exploring old traditional houses crammed together

Amasra, a lovely port town in northern Turkey, is a 3-hour drive from Ankara. Although it belongs to Turkey, the origin of its name is Greek, and it was also mentioned by the Greek writer Homer. Even in pre-Christ times, this town showed tourist potential – it was referred to as a “beautiful city”.

Amasra is a beautiful blend of Ottoman and Byzantine architecture, so you’ll enjoy strolling the small, winding streets and exploring old traditional houses crammed side by side.

You can’t go wrong with local cuisine, especially if you’re a seafood lover. Fresh and fine, whatever you reach for. And although the most famous drink is the traditional Turkish ayran, no worries – you will not be deprived of a glass of good beer or wine.

Although it has developed over the centuries and served as a port and place of trade, to this day Amasra has remained a small town with about 6,000 inhabitants. However, in summer the number of people in the city rises to 25,000. This certainly confirms that it is a beautiful place worth visiting, but if you want a calmer atmosphere, you better come in early autumn when the weather is still summer and tourists leave.
