The Safranbolu area of Karabük, which is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, was first visited by Russians in the New Year.
At 7:30 this morning, the Astoria Grande ship, which sailed from Russia, landed at Amasra Port. With 1082 Russian guests and 426 crew members, the Astoria Grande ship anchored in Amasra Port on its first journey of the new year. 45 Russian cruise passengers visited the Safranbolu area and embarked on a historical excursion.
The Ottoman architecture was much liked by Russian visitors to the historical neighborhood, which goes by names like “the fingerprint of the Ottomans,” “open-air museum,” and “the city that protects itself.” After purchasing, visitors to the ancient city and chocolate museum exited the area.
Irina Tarakanova, who noted that this was her first visit to Safranbolu, added,
“To witness such a historic city makes me very pleased. It is a location covered by UNESCO’s protection. This is a place I had never gone before. Most of the candy and marshmallows are served here by people. Turkish sweets and coffee are excellent. They had a lovely appearance.”
