Malatya

Malatya
This lively and cosmopolitan city is located 120km north of the Nemrut Mountains and has a population of around 600,000 with upmarket shops on tree-lined boulevards.  There is not much to see within the city itself but is a very nice place to spend a night before trekking off to the mountains and there are tours available to the old town of Eski Malatya and the nearby site of Aslantepe.  

Malatya has always been a political town and is home to two former presidents of the Republic, General Ismet Inönü and the part-Kurdish Turgut Ozal.  There is also a university and a massive army base here and the area is a fertile centre for fruit production and is famed for its apricots and in July the Mişmiş Park hosts the Apricot Festival.  

Although the city is large the central part is compact and where most of the hotels and restaurants are located
and all within walking distance of one another.  The bus station is 7km and train station 2km from the city centre and the airport is 28km northwest of the city.  There is a wide variety of accommodation and restaurants available to suit everyone and places of interest here include the Şire Market that sells all locally grown produce and next to it the copper bazaar, the Malatya museum houses artefacts found locally and in the northwest of the city is a very large and impressive Armenian church.
