Mersin

Mersin
The population in Mersin is 1.5 million and it has the largest Mediterranean port in Turkey, and is one of three large cities that connect the Ceyhan delta. 

The modern harbour today has regular ferry connections to Cyprus and although it was settled by the Hittites in ancient times there is little historical interest to be found here, and up until the 20th century it was no more than a very small fishing hamlet.  Over the last century due to industrialisation, and its role as an international free trade zone it has become a model, and somewhat characterless, example of modern Turkish urban planning. 

Mersin Museum

It does have a museum displaying a well presented collection of local archaeological artefacts dating from Neolithic to Byzantine times with some notable Roman clay sarcophagi, and has a charming garden area housing excellent stone carvings, and next door is a large Greek Orthodox Church. 

Transportation in Mersin

As the city’s bus garage is quite a distance from town visitors need to use the service bus or dolmuş minibus to get to the centre.  The centralised train station runs services to and from Adana with hotels nearby and there is a tourist office at the harbour. 

Mersin Hotels

Most of the hotels target business travellers and have budget, mid and top range rooms on offer and there are many different places to eat which should suit all visitors’ requirements.
