Alsancak Izmir

Alsancak Izmir

Location of Alsancak

Alsancak is a central district in Izmir city in the municipal area of Konak and is an historic part of Izmir that stretches along the tip of the southern shoreline on the Gulf of Izmir. The area begins at Konak Square where you will find the 19th century building of the Pasaport Quay, and extends 3,200m along the promenade called “Kordon” joining with the neighbouring district of Bornova which is at the end of the Gulf. 

Districts of Alsancak

Alsancak consists of five district areas along its shoreline which are; Umurbey, Kültür, Mimar Sinan, Ismet Kaptan and Akdeniz.  

Alsancak Attractions

Alsancak has a huge concentration of restaurants, bars, cafés, clubs and other entertainment venues set amongst the older buildings in and around the smaller back streets with many of the properties being restored for commercial purposes, and the Kültür Park, where the  Izmir International Fair is annually held, sits centrally within Alsancak’s district.

It is also home to the newest and most attended synagogue the “Shah Hashamayim” as the area has a higher concentration of Jewish inhabitants preferring to live here rather than in the traditional Jewish neighbourhood of Karataş. 
Alsancak is also home to the Port of Izmir, the  Izmir Alsancak Stadium and the Alsancak Railway.

Kordon

Alsancak’s main roads are the First (Birinci) Kordon and Second (Ikinci) Kordon and the area consists of level land with well planned streets, modern apartment blocks and shops, has some of the most chic and expensive residences, commercial properties, office blocks, and is also home to several foreign consulates.

Hotels

It has two well known international hotels, the Hilton and Swissotel, that are just behind the Square of the Republic (Cumhuriyet Meydanı) that is a wide space on the promenade with an equestrian statue of Ataturk .

Ataturk Museum

On Alsancak’s eastern side is the Ataturk Museum housed in a terraced double-storey mansion residence that has survived and remained intact, most others have been converted into apartment blocks, and this gives visitors a feel as to how the wealthy of Izmir lived in the 19th century.
