History of Safranbolu

History of Safranbolu
Safranbolu was previously known as Paphlagonia and took its name from the saffron plant, and has been the host of many different civilisations that include Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman and was conquered in 1196 by the Turks.

It peaked economically and culturally during the Ottoman rule as it was an important stop on the Istanbul - Sinop trade route and during the 17th century improved the commerce and wealth of the region. At that time it was close with the officials of Istanbul, Kastamonu and the Ottoman Palace and the wealthy people of the town built large mansions made of wood and stucco, many of which have survived today. In the 19th century many of the residents were Ottoman Greeks who left after the First World War.
