Amasra (Safranbolu), Turkey

Amasra (Safranbolu), Turkey

Amasra is an appealing little town built within the ramparts of a Byzantine citadel, and known for its pleasant beaches. The area’s major attraction, however, is Safranbolu, an important caravan station on the East-West trade route that reached it height in the 17th century. For an immersion into Ottoman culture it is just the ticket, as the town itself is a museum. Modern construction is prohibited in its historic neighborhoods, and traditional artisans are encouraged to practice their crafts in restored workshops. Enjoy a stroll down cobbled streets and visit graceful, well-preserved half-timbered houses.
