Sightseeing:

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 its height in the 17th century. For an immersion into Ottoman culture, it is just the ticket, as the town itself is a museum.

Amasra is a seaside resort on the Black Sea. Its population is normally 6,000, though this explodes in the summer to around 25,000.

Tours Excursions Transportation:

Enjoy a stroll down cobbled streets and visit graceful, well-preserved half-timbered houses.

Nearby Places:

Busses from Safranbolu take about 3 hours and cost around 10 YTL. Safranbolu is famous for its Ottoman houses both in Çarşı (old town) and the neighborhood of Bağlar (literally "orchards"), and qualifies as a UNESCO World Heritage sight.

Mencilis (Bulak) Cave which is 3 km from Safranbolu, worth to see since it is the 4th biggest cave in Turkey.
