Gaziantep

Gaziantep
This thriving modern city has a population of over one million, the largest in the region, and has benefited from the GAP Dam Project that has given it an air of prosperity.
The local government ensured industrial construction was kept separate from the city by a belt of forest and its archaeological museum has become a major tourist attraction. The museum houses over 800m2 of mosaics that rescued from the dam waters.
There are excellent examples of domestic architecture in the Christian and Jewish quarter and it has several mosques and a ruined castle.

 
Gaziantep is famed for its delicious pistachio nuts or “Antep Fıstığı”, the best in all of Turkey, and is a handy hub for travellers on route to more exotic destinations to the north or further east. The city’s old quarter is built on a hill and has a large park surrounding a river, the bus station is 5km and the train station 2km from the centre of town, and daily flights arrive from Ankara and Istanbul into Sazgan Airport 10km from the centre.

The tourist office provides maps and lists of accommodation available, although many of the hotels are business oriented, there are budget and mid-range options available and many restaurants, mainly unlicenced, to suit all pockets and palates.
