What to see in Safranbolu

What to see in Safranbolu
The old traditional houses and other numerous works of art are all under a preservation order.

Carsi and Baglar

The two main areas of interest are Carsi, in the south,
which is the older area of town and location of most of the winter houses, and Baglar, the location of most of the summer houses. In between is Kirankoy famous for the Greek houses that have excellent quality masonry and was home to the Greek people until the early 20th century. Carsi is the most popular area with visitors and is north of the castle “Eski Safranbolu” and it was here and the surrounding area that the original inhabitants settled.

Hidirlik Hill

The Hidirlik Hill is to the south and has two monuments used in the past as an open-air venue for rituals and ceremonies, an Old Government Building, a 200 year old clock tower that still works today, and a disused jailhouse.  

Historic Mosques in Safranbolu

There are also 25 important and historical mosques, the most famous of which are the Koprulu Mehmet Paşa and the Sultan III which were built by Izzet Mehmet Paşa the Grand Vizier to Sultan Selim.

Cinili Hani Caravanserai and Cinili Hamam

The town’s most famous building is the recently restored Cinci Hani a caravanserai built in 1645 with the adjacent Cinci Hamam that has separate baths for men and women and is still operating today.

Safranbolu Markets

Both business and commercial activities of the town are kept as traditional as possible with goods being made and sold in the bazaars like Yemeniciler Arastasi where iron, copper and tin are handcrafted traditionally and the Packsaddle Maker’s Bazaar still maintains its craftsmanship.
